It’s been so long


It’s been so long
Since I was right
In my heart

These habits formed
Like glaciers
On granite

A thousand years
A deeper wound
A hidden scar

No warmth inside
The river’s dry
The valley’s dark
——
When will we see
When will you hear
Fiercest fatigue
Roaring in me

I don’t know how
I don’t know if
I’ll make it out
Or if I’ll be ok
————

Where were you
The day I fell on
The threshing floor?

Before their gaze
Between their words
My breath was held

The fire burned
The tide swept
The hymn has wrung

And all that’s left
Is ashes
Of what was

———

When will we see
When will you hear
Fiercest fatigue
Roaring in me

I don’t know how
I don’t know if
I’ll make it out
Or if I’ll be ok

—–
It’s been so long
Since the dream
Of what could be

And I have have
And all that’s left
I can’t hold

Collections of
Their stories
So holy

It’s been so long
Where’d you go?
