in what remains of the day
rose petals on gravel decay
rain eats away at disengaged silk and
buds drink moonlight like a mother's sweet milk
to cricket sonatas underneath midnight's quilt

dreaming only in the dark
of passion like a match sparked
by uncanny circumstance
I'm caught in a pyrotechnic trance
until the beauty burns the hand that holds it
I yearn for you but fear the pain
as lovers lost have told it

my love, my darling
where have you gone?
I will wait for you
until the silk slips through my fingers
into the coming dawn

I've got moth-like tendencies
being drawn to a deadly light
convinced I will survive the night
never let go hold me tight


from Stray Dog Sessions, released February 23, 2018
