For a Vermont Farm Boy

I can’t stay because I love you
I can’t stay because I’m afraid you’ll forget me
I can’t stay to smoke cigarettes on the beach
I can’t stay to lose heat

but I want to
I really want to
I want to fall
I want to wake up together

I need you to send me
send me off into the abyss
of endless roads
off to feel small and cry alone
on tundras in cold thin air

and then I will come back to you
and there will never be a what if
