Then it rains, bruise the sky in layers

Yellow pale, like nicotine-stained fingers

Watching the glass run down, pouring

On a Nelson skyline

 

 

Love and pain, in our years together

There we’d lay, just listen to the weather

Wrapped up and pointing down, falling

On a Nelson skyline, fall…

 

 

Daylight fades, on pallid days that wallow

The burnt remains, behind the rooftops swallowed

Into the black beyond, sprawling

On a Nelson skyline

 

 

Nothing aches, like memories that falter

Beer-stained photographs that flicker

Forever fading out, falling

On a Nelson skyline, fall…

 

 

On it rains, drains the streets of clutter

Like scattered change, like spiders down the gutter

Returning Christmas cards from a stranger

On a Nelson skyline

 

 

Spirit wanes, in the twilight hours

Count out the days, pick petals from dead flowers

Boxed in a broken tower, stalling

On a Nelson skyline, fall…
