Taxi driver 

Drive me to a sweet place

Run the yellow lights hiding in the corners of my mind

Circle the red seas we painted silver

Their silent stares keeping me sound

 Espressos leaving a stain on every other morning

 Strangers pulling me apart

 Making left turns without the right warnings

 Driver the sweet place has never tasted so good


Darling we both know it won’t ever taste the same

 But If I knew how to mend a half-melted heart 

 I would
