Can I know more glory?
I am balancing on a few unknown seconds
You left me trembling in your eyes,
Talking through my questions with the heart.
The rain comes heavy on the hollow ceiling
For tonight I am going all the way in
Where you protect all of your deeper tragedies
And I know it will hurt most when the sun breaks-
And I know the pain.
My eyes stay closed while I’m inside you
Like some portrait of sorrow mixed with pleasure
The heart beats for our biggest fears
Because we both know we are only burning.
But still, your love never stopped.
You knew the void well.
The outcome was taking all of these physical moments away
With me caught watching it all;
Like the way the love unfurls quickly in silence with the roses
Even while the stowed away emptiness
Lingers around the beauty.
