Morning Theft

Morning Theft

Time takes care of the wound

So I can believe
You had so much to give
You thought I couldn’t see

Gifts for boot heels to crush
Promises deceived
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

Your eyes and body brighten
Silent waters, deep
Your precious daughter in the
Other room, asleep

A kiss “Goodnight” from every
Stranger that I meet
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

Morning theft
Unpretender left

True self is what
Brought you here, to me
A place where we can
Accept this love

Friendship battered down by
Useless history
Unexamined failure

But what amI still to you
Some thief who stole from you?
Or, some fool drama queen
Whose chances were few?

That brings us to who we need
A place where we can save
A heart that beats as
Both siphon and reservoir

You’re a woman, I’m a calf
You’re a window, I’m a knife
We come together
Making chance in the starlight

Meet me tomorrow night
Or any day you want
I have no right to wonder
Just how, or when

You know the meaning fits
There’s no relief in this
I miss my beautiful friend
I have to send it away

To bring her back again

  1. Ai que oásis, que lugar bom de vir!! Que tanta coisa boa pra ler! Este poema me fez pensar em meu irmão, que gostava muito de escrever em Inglês. Ainda tenho poemas dele...
    Continua minha amiga, motor da gente!


Quem não gosta de um carinho?!...
