veronica sawyer smokes

oh my story is not the oldest of it’s kind.
i was too touched to see you clearly,
far too young to realize i had loved so dearly you,
who’s world i had designed,
but the sweet smoke came with mirrors
and it brought tears to my wide eyes.
dying just to see you…
dying since i misconstrued your blue heart,
black eyes, feigning falling, words i won’t forget.
i died right when i saw you while you shared that cigarette.

oh i saw you every time i closed my eyes,
in the hughes film i had scored,
produced and starred in, in my mind.
i could recite you, well, i’d written every line…
but you strayed far from my flawless script
on which i’d spent a lifetime!
falling over dead.
dying since i had misread your blue heart,
black eyes, feigning falling, words i won’t forget.
i died right when i saw you while you shared that cigarette.
