How I Remember

sometimes you took my words
and made them something new
something borrowed, something blue
somehow both wrong and true

sometimes you took my smile
and turned it inside itself
made it beg and made it wealth
made it jump from the shelf

sometimes you took my hands
just to look them over
sometimes you took my eyes
just to glaze them over
but whenever I think back
that’s not how I remember you

sometimes you took my thoughts
and made your own the same
some were crazy, some were sane
we made it into a game

sometimes you took my mind
just to bowl me over
sometimes you took my heart
just to keel me over
but whenever I think back
that’s not how I remember–
you thought I’d never leave and so
you thought you could deceive me so
you’re left without me, freed from so
many wonderful times

sometimes you took my words
my mind…..
