Light the candles, don’t avert your eyes
Let the shadows out from where they hide
Come sit and lay bare bedrock-a-bye night
So your day will burn a thousand times
As bright

Please don’t hide
In metal pillows and paper sheets
Please do cry
Salt of your eyes falls home to the Earth at your feet

Whisper softly of the pain you nurse
How you treat time’s passing as a curse
In the quiet hours you can taste
Wisps of memories like cirrus trails
You can’t trace

Please don’t close
The lids of the eyes you were blessed with
Please hold close
Your unquenched innocent breath

Please don’t hide
Our steely shells and cloaks of confidence keep out the rain
But at the cost of what sight?
We lose our everything if we’re anything less than who we’ve always been


from Blue Feather [2014], released February 13, 2014
