I saw you float away to a dark belief, that the world will never change, that all love will someday wane. There's no heart's ease. Then so suddenly, there comes a storming rain on a sunny day. The way it's always been.
You are so far away, from way up in space. I need you to take my place. You are an open flame, while I'm the darkest cave. I need you to light the way.
I've been hungering just for a taste of the fighting sea and its violent grace. Salt in my veins. Flown on wanton wing, or an absence of gravity, to towers of ivory. The way it's always been.
You are a quill and ink, and I'm a blank white page. I need you to write our story. You are a healing place, while I'm eternal ache. I need you to numb the pain.
