autumn

And suddenly it's autumn
And the endless sweaty days have melted into
Crunchy leaves and cider
And you have melted into memories
Like the starlight from a distant constellation.
Your breath hangs on the air
Like the drifting leaves
Your kiss on my lips like dew.

I once chased the hot nights
Flying behind them on light summerwings-
But they find themselves sadly replaced
By scarves and sweaters
Cold and candy corn
Autumn and the feeling of being alone.

Wake me up if the sun changes his mind
And gives me back my lemondrop summer
And gives me back my lemondrop you.
My summerwings groan longing for one last flight together.
