Second Hand Sky

I am a thrift store poet
with second hand sky blue eyes
I leave a song in your pocket
and I let all your caged birds fly

I waltz down a street of dreams
wearing a second hand sky disguise
love is never quite as it seems
still I know a hopeful sun will rise

I believe
the promise of you
even if everything turns out to be a lie
I will believe
I will believe
in the promise of you
underneath a second hand sky blue
underneath a second hand sky blue sky

I'm a restless soul drifter
singing second hand sky blues
my heart's a hapless shapeshifter
and my head's just second hand news

I believe
the promise of love
and even if every rose may die on the vine
I will believe
I'll be your relief
the sweet promise of love
fly the second hand sky like a dove
fly the second hand sky until love shines

I am a thrift store poet
I waltz down a street of dreams
and oh

I believe
the promise of you
even if everything turns out to be a lie
I will believe
I will believe
in the promise of you
underneath a second hand sky blue
underneath a second hand sky blue sky

The sweet promise of love
fly the second hand sky like a dove
fly the second hand sky until love shines
I believe
the promise of you
and even if every rose must die on the vine
still I'll believe
I'll be your relief
underneath a second hand sky blue
underneath a second hand sky blue sky
underneath a second hand sky
I believe in you

My kind of writing, soul drifter. I admire your attitude, your persona, and most of all the expert posting of your lines. GREAT write!

Feels like your poem matches your name..I sense a kind of desperate or (hopeless?) longing unfulfilled. I hope I have interpreted this right

Sounds like this poem is in desperate need of a guitar. Sounded like a great song to me.
