We have always had our hearts
broken by cities
You and I
Places which hold our dreams
Our secrets our promises
It has a hold over us
I can see it in the gleam of your eyes        
 In your slow intake of breath
Always remembering you in cities
Cities which has memories of you
Because I whisper  your name
Trailing all that is left of you in me
We imprint our mortal names
On the edge of these towns        
Its sidewalks littered  with our drunkenness
Places we love at first sight          
Other places that grow on us        
Remembered cities forgotten towns
We map them all in our palms
To be read like a horoscope
We have always had our heart
 broken by cities
As though cities were lovers
