Ash and ice

Sapphire
And
Diamond things
She
Sews her heart
Of flesh
To
Ghost ship sails
And
Goes away
Into night
Into day
Flagship
Hands
We toss our souls
Into the fray
Into the waves
Lungs
Of water
Of ash and tongue
A sea of words
Against my spirit
Watch us break
Tied to souls
made of Stone
Castles
Against the sky
Pulling us down
She tears herself
Into pieces
Let it go
Against the night
Let it go
Against the moon
Against the light
She’s not sleeping
She’s not breathing
She’s not sleeping
Sapphire and diamond things
Ties her soul
Ghost ship sails
She is here but gone away
Two different worlds
She sees in magic
Her spirits free
Breathes in smoke
Lungs of fire
Hands of weather
Heart of thunder
She’s not sleeping
She’s not sleeping
She’s not sleeping
Into the night
Into the night
Her soul is awake

-E
