Sweet Stolen Lullaby

The melodies and rhymes
We listened to
As they squeezed themselves
Out of the radio,

Colours spreading through the kitchen,
Our itching lips moving close,
A new love in our eyes,
United by tunes.

We sucked in the birdsong
And hummed through the city
Pulling in the rainclouds
And spitting out the sun,

Concocting a sweet stolen lullaby,

Unlocking the feelings
We’d buried
Inside.
