This is what it comes to.
The waters rising over the high roads,
the clouds going purple, and the sky a dirty yellow.
Everyone can die, everyone will live
but my heart only beats so long as yours does.
I’ll stand here and wait, and silence can befriend me.
But with four hundred miles, between the sun and my sea,
I’d imagine myself becoming miracles
walking on clear water,
and dead in the instant I stepped on land and drowned.
Gravity speaks in deathly whispers,
and calls to the wind to break it, kill it off before the pain takes it over.
We’re tearing ourselves apart,
and wallowing in dust,
but in a day we’ll all fly, or dig in deep within our souls.
The hall before me
is infected with tears.
It’s like a match with correlation
and the mask you bear all these years.
I’d climb the surface to redemption
but never would my heart
feel it’s sincere.
I’d walk thin wires for years for you
but you wouldn’t take a step off the cliff.
I’d mutter my own crazed interpretations,
while you fend the demons in your glass case of a soul.
We’re both fragile and incapable of dealing,
but I imagine that we’ll wander over the right stream.
