Holes in the film

Who where you to me

But a phantom

A simple shade

Just the shadow of

A cloud

On my sunny days/

And I watched

As the molecules

Moved in and out

In wisps of white and gray/

So that while I stared

The light

That shown through

In clips, in sudden breaks

Was far too bright

For my eyes to take/

Still

As much as I try

To look away

The holes in the film

I could not shake/

I just watched

As the molecules

Moved in and out

In wisps of white and gray/

Lovers never

Too ambiguous

To hold

A constant shape

Back to the sea, back to its shores.

Youre the shore of the ocean

Im the slow rolling waves

I can see where the salt dried

To the beds of your face/

on the tide slipping backward

im the perpetual chain

dragged out to join

this collection of rain/

im the one springing upward

im the one on the bank

The tree with no roots

That the river washed away/

And I float down its waters

To let the river wash away/

back to the ebb

back to the flow

back out to you

the sea as my home/

back out to roar

back out to foam

to get back to you

to crash on your shores.

A whole, full of

Lying in a bed of truth

Alone and comfortable

Especially when with you

Tapered expectations

Have lead me astray

Away from a past

Driven from embrace

Into conflict of ego

Awash in emotions

I feel no sweet caress

I sleep to no serenade

A dream full of search

Nightmares tailored

Predictable and safe

So when we wake

It is all still there

Full of potential

Devoid of presence

Full of promise

An absence of space
