Someday You Will Be Loved

Seventy-six seconds
I lay in the arms of a man,
Unknown and startled
He entangled my brittle arms
In the rusty landscape of an embrace,

So sudden,
His words a blur as they
Swarmed in past the little hairs
On my neck, turning to gooseflesh
At the flick of a switch

There are so many moments
I could have chosen to remember
To cherish—
Swim and float in the warm waters
Of my mind, the rough yet gentle waves

Having me drenched,
The surface licking at the backs
Of my ears and my head
As I let myself wander, slowly
Through immobile matter

Seventy-six seconds
I lay in the arms of a man,
A burnished cocoon in early winter
Cement to protect me from the
Scraping claws of cold,

Yet at dusk—
When all remnants of
That moment were gone I let
The windows crack and the locks melt
And I let it in again, that glint of doubt.

You’ll be loved you’ll be loved
Like you never have known
And the memories of me
Will seem more like bad dreams
Just a series of blurs
Like I never occurred
Someday you will be loved.
(Death Cab For Cutie)

    I love this and I love the repeat of the line and time of seventy-six seconds. Great write!
