How can you walk with death so deep inside you
Half expecting me to share a seat,
To share a drink, a bed and never move
Like a weathered stone subdued in peat.
Forever may I be the dirt you kiss
In sacrificial, sacrilegious pause;
The gift of cursing gods and and holding fists
Back from breaking down, from breaking walls.
Define affinity beyond a flail
For struggled breaths and curiosity
Or suffer in the sight of tearing sails.
Your demons mirror your monstrosities.
I just want to know that you're coming home;
I just need to know that you're coming home.
