Before you slip into unconsciousness
I’d like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss
I can’t help it, I think of the song whenever I see it.
There’s not a regular schedule to its appearances. No hints as to when it will show. And it has never come close for me to see anyone on board.
It’s usually on calm nights like this. Late at night.
I’ve tried to be casual about asking other people if they’ve seen it. Not so that if they haven’t, they won’t think I’m crazy. But so they won’t go looking for it. Maybe do something to make it stop coming around.
I want to keep it for myself.
