Nothing can save me now
Once and again, when I give in
Once I am that time before
And again, when I love him
Grieving shadows, they don’t scare me
Fiery letters, crawl away
And no one comes to hear me
For what is good
That fools can say

I should walk alone now
I should find a limb
To lie my body over
Drive pain within this sin
And God would be the only
The one to take me down
For no other can warn me
& move such foolish sound

My heart is where our home is
In the windswept field of sun crowned animals
On the dock,  embraced in a summer’s end
Within the rolling moonlight down a clover hill
All of this always and never again

There is a drenching in attachment
Things that flew so sadly & adrift, settle
Or else succumb to rising brightness
A spring’s sudden death
Emerges like a faithful morning
He knows all you’ve lost
& gathers you up in pieces as you are
He calls it a pledge
You call it a bet
Either way – there is no returning
