between a rock and a soft place
I bury my head
ignorance finding me both unready and unwilling
painting my nails a new shade of golden blue

My buried head breathes and eats the dust of the earth
a remedy for both forgetting or remembering.
A line in the sand, holding too close together everything and nothing.
In Love with a God I'm not sure I want to forgive.

So here we are
with words, fingers,
sighs & spaces,
saying nothing
in these same words
over-worn & overwrought

breaking ideas into pieces
for a pound of flesh
mine for yours
many too much
wine back to water
salt of the sea

The weather is watching,
always changing
how we breathe.

It's been so Long
and the earth turned hard 
waiting for your rain

waiting for you to come
to your own funeral

to cry 
for your heart 
& breaking
over & over

dreaming like water

we were thirsty 
we wanted all of you

we broke our wishbones
wanting more than we could chew

You need to open the window
to get out of the house
out of your mind
your skin

time to let love pass right through

hopefully hopeless

Like a conversation I can't carry
words missing double meanings
an infinite nothing
I love you so hard man

The hard way
heavy heaving
my own glass heart
beating, breaking, bloody
for everyone
to lie face down and drown in

This is the way I Love;
heavy and sinking,
like a stone
slowly falling through water.

Hard but solid
dependable even in it's falling apart
grain by grain
to become the sands of time itself.
