Now That I'm Not In Love With You

from Ten Things Which Aren't Love by Pale Bird



You asked if we could meet
At an impossible location
Somewhere that’s between
A desert and a street

You talked through your affairs with me in a derelict hotel
Counting each one out
One the fingers of your hands

‘Till complicated feelings fell
To the thrill of trespass
To knowing what it means
To recount these things again
Now that I’m not in love with you

You found a frozen eyeball
Lying in the snow
And you put in the finger of a glove and took it home
You should feel stretched and swollen
You feel bright and hopeful

Now the sun isn’t my friend
Nor the mountains or the sea
Or the man-made places where the sight-lines lead to me
Now that I’m not in love with you
