Unblighted

What about our melody?
Do you remember,
How it goes?
Do you know your way
Back to it?
Back to where we got stuck,
Back to me.

Will you be back for beginnings?

I’ve asked time to wait.
Hearts to be patient.
Pain to evanesce.

For you.
For the smile,
You wear in eyes.
For a love,
You weave in silence.
In innocence.

Remember us.

Remember.
We had serenaded.
In each other’s shade.

In The Middle Of The Night

There’ll be moments
Fighting mortality,
Waiting for you, telling no one.
To no one
Shall cater the cries,
And the past
Shrieking into the silence
Of broken dreams,
Of broken strings,

Deep into time.
Deep into sands that swallow half-shells,
And half-memories,
Half-forgotten and half-alive,
Half-lost in hindsight.

Only to form again
In disjointed halves,
Raising its neck over the coming tide,
Before breaking again
Into a thousand parts,
Into an emptiness that’s cold,
That’s cruel,
That’ll hold;
Weeping and wailing,
Dreaming and disappearing.

There’ll be you,
Dreams of you,
Desires and despairs of you,
All that’s launched directionless,
All my heart could manage,
On faraway nights,
On nights long, long back,
That shall one day find their way to you.
All of me will find all of you.

And one day,
You’ll wake in the middle of the night.
