almost real
beautiful shadow

This was a true story inspired by a gift of flowers left on my car the night of my birthday.

almost real


what's this strange feeling that i feel

could it be something real,

she blew in on a whisper and a kiss

i knew i was going to miss.


when i left the bar

there were sunflowers on my car

and a note that read

something she never said…


this was almost love

almost something to

speak of

it was almost real

almost something that made me feel

almost real.


we played records until four

the scent of summer on her skin,

there was no time for sleep

the questions ran so deep.
