I moved before the winter storm
    the grass was dead; the trees were torn
        There was no moon-
    the sky was dim

        I moved before the storm.

You sang arpeggios late at night
    to dolls that sat in lantern light.
        The walls were bare,
    the world was dead

        I moved before the storm.

The clouds began to drown us out,
    you stayed alone, I headed south.
        The water sank one drop a time.
    You kept your dolls,
        I abandoned mine.

Now our apartment, Brooklyn bound
      saw Coney Island sink the ground
        The East River- The Hudson Bay
    You got stuck
        I sailed away.

Now your dolls, a New York hue
    Washed up on Ocean Avenue
        There's still no moon, the sky is bare-

I moved before the storm.
Ah, my friend, all good things must end. :(
I miss Brooklyn. I miss you.

Thank you for the DLD.

Wow, late to the party much?  Haha, thanks!  I actually don't come on deviant art that much anymore so that's why my comment is a few months late.  Perhaps I should start coming back. 
Anyway, thanks for the feature.  I appreciate it.  :D
