THE FIRST POEM

Through the tears in my eyes

The sky is like a vase full of stars

That has just been broken

All I wanna do is lay here and soak in my sins

With my head between these melting mountains

Your crazy love starves me of sweet mercy

And the swelling ground beneath me

I can almost rest with my falling water

While this happy hell that keeps me warm

Builds heaping bands of pain in my soul

I wait here to see you

I wait for my heart to find home

Tame this hectic life for me

Take me to where you sleep

Where you breathe and kiss yourself

Open your fevering heart

And just let me lay inside your chest tonight

Promise your tempting self to love with will

And I will

While your smile resembles curious vibrance

And your eyes lie me to sleep

Question me and enthuse my spirit

By mine more than anything
