Paper boats

Spread the evil

(A song by Sidharth Vardhan first published on August 13, 2020)

The sugary treats
The summer rains
The wet slippers
And the paper boats
Thats what I remember
Of the day things turned sore.

Floating togather
While waving away
And toward each other
were our paper boats
That’s what I remember
Of the day things turned sore.

Your laughter
Magical and sweet
Joy joyistly joy
And the two little paper boats
That’s what I remember
Of the day things turned sore.

A car and a flash of light
Your blood and red rains
Crowding people
And of in distance a drowning paper boat
Thats what I remember
Of the day things turned sore.

In black silences
I hear you scream
“Oh! Don’t you cry
Over drowned paper boats”
But how can I not
When things turn sore?

I promise
will laugh one day
And everything
won’t be blue and sore
But I can’t help but sigh
Everytime I see paper boats.
