This Town

this town is covered in fog

rolling out in the morning to show the day

the lies it hides, distracted from view

spectacular to visitors, yet ominous to us

so you’d be forgiven for seeing the beauty

but That feeling won’t leave you

this town is covered in fog

it comes at dawn and dusk each time

with it comes discomfort and unease

and the birds stop singing and the trees fall silent

it’s hard to breathe and the air is thin

the fog is heavy and my shoulders are small

this town is covered in fog

it weaves the streets and hides the beach

echoing my thoughts before they’ve been formed

reverberate my anger and amplify my sadness

the missing link between time and space

come feel the void’s kiss on your palms and cheeks
