Got to disappear in some great void of water Want to be arrested by the sound Under sheets of metal Underneath it all I am nothing, I am but a shape Galleries of water Underneath the length of her Doesn’t matter what I say, she will always be here Put the pieces in there, watch them disappear Worthless to be able, it is lost in the sound Extricate the battle by just saying nothing Got to be more careful of this Hell Galleries of water Underneath the length of her Doesn’t matter what I say, she will always be here She won’t go away

I be the shame you see I’ll shut the door behind me The shallows of the Sea are rising up to greet Thee Humbleness and All on the bedroom wall Won’t be saving this one Not at all You bring those things you brought I put them in their box where all those things must go You’ll never know She speaks of Sun all up in our hair We close our eyes but we can’t get there Open up, put it down Don’t get up, don’t give up

My heart is a part of me but she lies I’m shining sea to sea but it’s not right You’ll lose me in the trees but I’m Alive Your hands look just like mine and Your voice went into my spine when I was just a gleam in your eye There were ghosts in the sidewalk that night But the fear of them was absent with you by my side Your hands are just like mine and Your voice went into my spine when I was just a gleam in your eye And you can lead me to the water but you cannot make me drink But you will not be avoided because your ghost is haunting me You made me in the Spring time but my body met the cold You were crying in the corner and that fear is all I know

Someday the river will find me; solid walls of water And I’ll gestate in white under layers of ice In the first of the year I was born Almond-colored and warm Under blue waves and what little good it’s done So if I return my body to the running black Dark and cool and sudden Will it be me? Will I see me? And at Holidays I remember they asked me how I was And at Holidays I will wonder ‘How much longer?’

Put the hurt on me, gave you everything Never one to freeze over and be wondering Several followers at the bottom of a rock-salted ledge Far from my Self It’s all you wanted And the power is fallen from seven towers Rise up and falter again Cover up this one, should be Honored From the sight of blood; should be higher up than Now the Summer falls, loving water runs into dirtied streets of saddened offerings It’s all you wanted The power is fallen from seven towers Rise up and falter again

Little one, the summer sun is almost gone Don’t be caught in the dark with the one who has taken your soul Little bell pealing out at the magic of the day, Don’t be taken away I need you to stay The sunset in Autumn in the back of your car The wondrous falling of a star, far But close in the shadow of the garden at night I want to come with you, I will try Perfect light on my bed won’t you put me down instead Steady rain is coming soon, Won’t be long til you’re gone The sunset in August in the back of your car The wondrous falling of a star, far But close in the shadow of the garden at night I want to come with you, I will try

Alone in the bathroom, filled with love For fluorescent lights and the dull edges of a knife To be so full and surrounded by breathing bodies But only holding one’s mind Having one mind And it’s not offering anything, no help of any kind Sliding doors signal something: The end of a Song; the end of outpouring And into the smile for forever Don’t put your hand in my vision I cannot bear the weight And I am in the bathroom and I Am already done for for the next few days

The shadow, my shadow I can’t see Still figure suspended behind me The spirits and shapes they make I’ve never grown to hold their face in the dark So the offer I make Is a promise to stay here Though my wounds do grow May I hold onto this hope Their dark heads will quiet in my sight Hands will stay from me this night if I only close my eyes To the ones outside of my sight The offer I make Is a promise to stay here If I only close my eyes to the ones outside of my sight And give honor to what I can’t know They will walk with me where I go But be still behind their shroud May they never speak out loud So the offer I make Is a promise to stay here May they leave me out their wandering And be still
