Choking on rivers
Spelling out shivers
Why do you need to know when I’m cold?
Mountains forgive me
Sunrises feel me
And my sympathetic heart
Alone, alone, alone, alone
The guitar crosses me and the stone
That ruptures my skin
And pulls me to safety
Where the sky never turns grey
And the oceans don’t hate me,
And you pretend that you care
Hurt by the whales
That travel through hurricanes
To enter to the tale
Of men fighting horses
And men making choices
That cut all those who have no voices.
The world is rusted, moist and dusted
But will it ever lull us to sleep?
Eternity awaits, but blue skies erase
The memories that hold me close
So stretch your mind
Through the long-wooded forest
Whispering details you wished you’d forgotten
And uncover the snow from the frost-bitten sky
Catching red snow-flakes, one at a time
Until the rain stops and then you die
