The Apple Tree

By and by

I sit with you

Your legs crossed

My eyes like glue


With a sigh

You reach for me

My tears soft

Under the apple tree


Let me cry

‘Neath the shade

Don’t hold me close

Don’t be brave


Don’t ask why

I hold you back

Your heart is deep

Mine is black


If we fly

Then I might drop

You might stay

I won’t stop


Only I

Will hold you near

Your face turned out

When I am here


Never try

Your words mean all

Don’t waste, not one

In this shaded hall


Just a lie

Is all I need

Feed me once

And I’ll be freed
