Solace comes in black and white
Shades of grey, echoing
In my room

An all French picture
Talking, fading in and out
Three lines, in my native tongue
Sounding, resounding
Less familiar
Than the subtitles laid out
In the corner
Of the tube
In my room

My mother coughs
Thin walls cannot forgive
Nor forget
As the old French movie
Moving, echoes
A cough
In my room

Remember as a child
Feverous, burning, coughing
My mother waking
Showing, no words spoken
The subtitles of an old French movie
Bringing comfort
Sleep coming on
As the lines appeared
One after another
And I no longer worried
In my room

Pick Up The Pieces, The Bodeans (via thepurplecloud)

"Where to run, baby, Where to hide
Caught in the rain on the losing side
All you wanted was some kind of friend
All you got was some heartache instead"
