Untitled #233

I wrote this after a Jawbreaker binge. Not trying to imitate them or anything, I was just inspired to jot down some quick thoughts I had about a day in downtown Annapolis.

I pull my jacket tighter against the breeze that rolls in off the bay
It's freezing out, and raining, but I've got you and half a pack of cigarettes
We're hiding out down by the Market House.

Is that the dead gray sea of clouds reflected in your eyes
Or just contentment as we laugh over sample size cups of gritty coffee
That last until they're cold as our shaking hands.

The tourists packed it in hours ago, but we'll stick the downpour out
Moving from one storefront overhang to the next
Until, soaked through we gave up even trying to stay dry.

I pulled you into the doorway of an Italian cafe the midshipmen like
And tried to think of something I should say but then
I gave up on words and kissed you instead.

We started off this day with no intentions but to get lost
But in the February sleet of an abandoned city
What I found brought me home.

This finally has a title- "For Emma"

Try to contain yourselves and not be too blown away. I know it's such an original concept, writing a song for a girl.
