River

Streaming to reach

beneath my surface

loveless loneliness

crossing your eyes

breaking away

dry lips,

summer lovin’

only loathing

low in the night.

Catching fear

through the blood

Draught felt colder

before the brink

running through

to steal the moon

so that our fingers

could meet again

pointing at the sky

You’ve seen me before

resurrect me

let me take you back

remind you

how good losing sleep

feels
