pedal steel, you stole my heart

Country Song

wild when we met in a spring turned field
where i took the reins tight from your soft hands

i kicked the dirt as the sun was going down
behind you standing there in a simple shift dress

bit my lip when i pulled you close for a kiss
beneath a black-eye purple bruise sky blushing

a sun setting, a song settling
over us along with the waltz and weep
of pedal steel and the slow strum of heartstrings
