Miscommunication

If it was one thing she could do

it was to forget about me

she used to change plans

and opinions on a whim

without taking me into account

life used to feel empty and numb

and the fog was usually bleek and heavy

when I was around her

if it was one thing we could do

it was to constantly misunderstand each other

and the words used to twist and turn around us

and Sweden and China used to feel numb and cold

with grey skies and lost dreams

if it was one thing I was able to do

it was to forget about myself and

stay silent

and not to lose face

until I felt I lost everything

if it was one thing I could do it was to

fly from place to place like a leaf in the wind

and the world used to feel expectedly unfamiliar

wherever I travelled

if it was one thing I could do

it was to be light as the sky

and angry at the same time
