Sunset

I wondered
If anyone
Has ever seen
The sunset
In her eyes
—-
They used to shine
Like lights over water
I wonder
If anybody has ever been to you
A friend
Like you have been for – I

Wonder…

Oh now mama
There’s homeless in the street
You don’t even know
The records the soul keeps
—-
See that cloud
Hanging down
There’s a storm breathing now
Like Samson
To pull the pillars of the earth down
One last moment of strength
And so so we go…
—-
and

Do you ever worry that you’re everything you’re really afraid of in other people ?

Do you ever see that knife in your hand?

Do you stand in the butchers floor
Where heaven, hell and hearts meet
And see
every man
Can do this evil

understand
I do not
Plot against you

There’s a loneliness
That you just keep inside
You can
Walk on for so long now …
not sure if you’re ever
Really happy
Or if you’re just pretending
—-/
It’s a scar
That we all carry
At different points in our life
And it’s one we must decide to put down
Even without answers
—-/
And so I wonder
How many ways
How many days
That I will change
Along the way…

And how many ways
this heart will fight to stay the same
