You Are The Summer / Impostor

by Neil Milton

supported by
I'm locked inside a room of my own making and I can't escape The winter's over but she won't let me go, she's got me in her grip I slip away to come and meet you by the station the promise of a day spent beneath the sun You are the summer From you, the feeling flows Distant memories of snow-covered cars and of the icy ponds Are left behind us as we walk through the park in the mid-morning heat Your pale skin shimmers and reflects the golden sunshine Your dark eyes show us summer skies are always blue You are the summer From you, the feeling flows A year without the summer is a year spent without love You are the summer From you, the feeling flows You are the summer From you, the sunshine glows You are the summer From you, the feeling flows
Impostor 03:28
Sleeping under a blue-sky bridge Until the blue turns grey Passing time with a dream of Camus Another sunny day An afternoon slipping away A teenage evening waiting tables Living in your own head Sketching stories of lovers and loss And what those lovers said And what they might have said instead Yet you never sit down to write These new ideas grow old Always scared that the world will judge you The fear that leaves you cold The words that remain untold Until you break the hold What did those lovers say How will you write it your way In the morning you'll write it down And hope that it makes sense Weaving poems of post-modern angst A future in past tense A safe last line of defence Another sunny day An afternoon dreaming away
