unerringly

you return to me, unerringly
like the wave to the sea
and i am left with answers
to questions i couldn't ask.

have i been here before
where the sky meets the earth?
have your dreams been mine
and those lemon-scented nights?

yes, i foolishly seek the end
to a journey that's just begun
my eyes they strain for bends
while i overlook beginnings.

darkness falls, and i look around
and find you by my side
my unlived days have passed, i
have found the nights i live.

Fallen Stars

What if i tell you
That the stars that have fallen
At your feet
Were my fears once?
Each a part of me
That lay awake as darkness
Screamed its way through
Corners of my mind.
And then you vanquished them
And set them free
And let them be.
And my night sky
Glowed with stars again
And i knew what i had to do
I gave you all the stars.
For all i have ever loved
Is darkness and sorrow bare
And now you steal my pain
And i see that
I have belonged to joy
Even before laughter
Sweetly kissed my eyes.

Days like this
When i am undecided
Not knowing who i am
Where i come from,
Or where i begin.

Not knowing the questions
Or what i want to say
Days like this
When i am undefined.

I need your eyes to see
What's undecided in me
Days like this.
