‘We are our Mistakes’ by John Drudge

I remember
Those times
That defined us
I remember
The mean clouds
That barked black
Upon the summer’s
Fading light
And nipped at our heals
As we retreated
Into timid shelters
And I remember
When you came to me
Broken and wrapped
In forgotten dreams
To make new mistakes
In a messy world
