False Light

Composed 6/17/13
Description: Just some thoughts I had today.

I don’t even want you, you know
And I couldn’t have you if I did
But I’ve been thinking of your lips lately
Of your calloused working hands
Pulling me to your torso broad
And your warmth so dear

But it’s just those things I want, once lover
You’re just a trembling lamp
So I will let the moon wax and wane
And wait in darkness for the light
