SELF RELEASED

lyrics

there’s a pull between the endless love that comes from me
that keeps my arms and my legs unfolded constantly
and that of solitude and time to be
left alone in quiet, untouched peace

but even in such graceless placement you did come to me
to touch our flesh to feeling flesh in the deep
you made me stay until a pearl we’d see
converting dirt to opaque silken sheen

and when i took a deeper look
i let you in
and simply sank into the sand

it isn’t in the way you move
it’s in the way
you simply stood and took my hand

so set me anchored down while the world whips through
so sunken in my eyes till all i see is you
an intermittent shine of an off-white pearl
built up by countless hours in our salt swept pool

and when i took a deeper look
you said stay still
and i simply sank into the sand
