lyrics

of course the moon was nearly full
as had been the night we had-
march is after all, the other side of november
and in november i gave you
as if some vital gift
this is all a lapse of mine, maybe the most blessed kind
surely i will not think or feel again
here is the ride back from the hills getting smaller and smaller
they are still mud brown, we won't see them
see spring, though i held the first cream buds in my hand. should i compare them to you-
looking at you is utter pain. you look more beautiful every day.
here are the lips i have traced with my hand, one side will come undone above the other
part that sticks when you smile, you touch with your finger
when you are deciding anything. that your bones,
the pink of the places were picked and scarred
by you, not some bearable freckles of the sun,
are bitten the texture of your skin only
deepens here are these eyes
that make this curve of the line,
these dark curls wet
after the water,
the beautiful, you are
a child still almost yet grown
i like this mind of how you
greet the people, please and find
your way, the parked car, the escalator, the bowl of something,
i am so glad, you will go home tonight
and kick the heater until it works
and curl awake in bed
for a few moments until quickly you fall,
why should i whisper that you are the most precious thing?,
no need, when you are in front of me,
we are already dead,
i'd rather you be after where i imagine you.
so go on forever, fall out of the light
the moon has granted us as you ask if i was made for you
or rather, i say, i was made with you in mind
but you were not made for me, no one was made for me.
no, you are the beyond thing,
dreamt of only through
this unbelievable love, and you
and you.
