my lover farther than the eye can see
her curving coastline bordering the sea
i told you i could make love in a tree
prefer it in fact, the higher the better

my savior promises to sail far away
and drag me glistening blissful in his wake
to toil for the moaning open road
there’s no other way
no place can hold me hold me

i harbor the wanderlust
in this lumbering heart

this small flame flickers erratically like the spray
crashing thin and angry from the waves
holding the sand the shore the craving life
slightly at bay, as though to savor it better

while dancing ecstatically with flowers in my hair
i’ll follow the faintest breezes anywhere
shelter the bitter howling wind
in the crook of my arm and let it tear me apart

the dunes grew high
like arms both heavy and wide
silent, holding

now i’m moored here the tide has come and gone again
but this time the ocean knows it’s not my home
it leaves me with wishes fine and dear
i don’t see it go but taste the saltiest tears
