Starting Over Dark

I’m not sure where I got the idea
but it’s stayed with me throughout the years
“along with men of blue
come leagues of hurt for you”

I thought I knew what was going on
that destiny just needed help
but I ignored or forgot
my only natural thought

anything deep is dark
anything true is sharp
so now I’m starting over
starting over with you

it’s funny when life takes a turn
when you’re craving to go straight
the darkest eyes have called me
so shall I go to you?

anything deep is dark
anything real is sharp
starting over
starting over with you

give me a moment
until I know I’m alright…..

anything deep is dark
but not all pain is sharp
starting over
I’m starting over with you
starting over
I’m starting over with you

Serious Reflection

back on the isles
a confusing white mess
a figurehead files
off her silvery tress
standing up straight
never meant taking aim
in sinking her plait
you avoid taking blame
she walks along, slow
with a bird on each hand
her tumultuous glow
mirrors water on sand
and this do you cross
with your opening light
upon the wave’s toss
in the soft silken sight
your pining betrays you
as you spy from afar
your pining betrays you
as you gaze at her star
your pining betrays you
too distracted to note
your pining betrays you:
her locks are afloat
