You Lost Me

It's like beautiful arty girls in scarves with dangling earrings
Sommmething, something
Something nearly, or overly?
an angry 
Was it a line about love? 
And the angry was to describe a silly object running parallel?
I had suddenly thought of the Old Mill my dad took me for ice cream
The Old Mill's gone - but does this have a point with the line?
Nearly had sounded awkward in the middle of the sentence, 
so it was something something, nearly. 
Or overly?
Was it something with British students and their way
Angry boxes, angry plates or throngs of things I'm thinking of - 
that don't distract the speaker 
He had nearly hurt himself, or rather, hurt himself, nearly
Not by angry mobs 
He was happy, this was about love, and the throngs did not dissuade him. 
But it had lead to thoughts of beautiful arty girls with peacock earrings 
Did it then start from the hospital?
The angry pavement did not dissuade him, nearly. Overly? No. 
Was it an explanation to a professor?
The angry something was a metaphor, that much is clear. 
The nearly or overly doesn't matter because it wouldn't fit properly 
What was in the middle then?
That Mill keeps popping up
Coming across a page and highlight a line. Then slowly fill the margins and spaces 
with yellow. Staring now at your bright yellow page, 
you search for the word that first intrigued you. 
The more I stuff the scarves into my head, the more the other words, 
left at the battelines, fade away
