As the mist cleared, I saw…

As the mist cleared, I saw the kettle.
I suggested making us a cup of tea
and with that
we began to
slowly
work things out.

As the mist cleared, I saw
that I was tense.
Making no sense.
Full of pretence.
Then I took a breath
and became who I am.

As the mist cleared, I saw a ladder leading to a better life. I couldn’t quite get hold of it though.
It was a mist opportunity.

As the mist cleared, I saw endless hope. I saw everything we had been through, clear as day: everything made sense. Thank god for Friday night.

As the mist cleared, I saw your gaunt figure
I thought you’d be bigger
But after so long
Not forgotten, but gone
I pulled the trigger.

As the mist cleared, I saw the road I was travelling. I didn’t know where I was going but I knew it would take me there.

As the mist cleared, I saw what it was to be alive. Saw humans for what they really were. I longed for the mist to return.

As the mist cleared,
I saw you
You saw me
We saw each other.
We fell in love.
The mist returned.
We split up.
The end.
