Hell and Earth

Some things come easy
Some things take time
It’s darkest at night
I drove through tornados
I looked hell in the face
And watched as it dissipated over the interstate
Just to hold a woman through the night
Just hold her
And feel her, asleep in my arms…
We’ve spent a damned eternity
Convincing ourselves
That we don’t need people
That we are doing just fine
But damn
There’s a note there
It holds the world in its pitch
Gods have tried to keep it…just for worship…because it creates…
And it is light…
It is eternity…
And it is right…right every time
It holds back the night.
