Sweet Architect

Oh sweet architect, my bones are heavy and my soul’s a mess. I’ve been lonely since the day you left, so come find my address, build me up, build me up… The song playing on the radio on this summer afternoon had me staring longingly at the pool. Too bad the renovation days were over; they […]

You walk through the door, with your bags at your feet, you hold perfectly wrapped lilac, and tell me all the sweet words that made me […]
