Shadows of the driveway speak.
I’ve been brought to a knee.
I struck out most recently into golden failure heat.
I’ve been caught in stranger things.
I’ve hidden out for days.
And when I go to you I fail to be what we need.
I couldn’t leave.
Not for anything - so far away.
I know that it’s been a while,
with changes to the words I speak,
and things I think you won’t believe.
With everything in real time -
a core ache for a different kind -
you have made me feel inspired.
Out where the breeze sets in,
I’ll rove the streets at night.
Leaves know to rustle when it’s threatening a bit too quiet.
I’ll come off from the hill,
make my way down the drag,
halfway determined to find strength within what we have.
I tried to tell you everything I knew there.
You said a fool is one who doesn’t learn from.
I tried to tell you everything I mean there.
I don’t want to lose you but I need to find truth.
