Bittersweet

Apples and peaches and pears.
You said you would cry tonight.
The air was dry but my face was wet.
The night was warm and dreamy.

You said you would cry tonight,
heavy rolling tears into your pillow
and I hope you were telling the truth.

    No worries. Are you able to get back home?
