There is something so terrible about returning

To places where you once were so unbelievably happy, so stupidly happy

Feeling so much less, it only deepens your trouble

Green clouds on purple sky, snow glazed mountains,

Air sharp as a knife, midnight stars sparkling 

Like sugar in a spoon still seem so beautiful to me

Too bad they can’t help me feel better

After all they’d seen.
