lyrics

“wallwalker”

“let’s walk across these walls,
well after dark.
It’s our nighttime ritual—
I’ll catch you if you fall.”
(ten stories up.)

your hand was warm in mine,
then we began our climb.
“ooh, babe, i love you so—
so high above the world.”
(’neath our black sun.)

the whiskey warmed her body,
and she then was brave.
she always knew her arms were strong,
and she felt safe.
her dreams were made of wanderlust—
the sky teased her with a simper.
she flapped her wings, flew with a gust,
and left without a whimper.

my eyes burn, raw with guilt
from how your body spilled.
upon concrete, your lips were cold;
your hair was sprawled in gorgeous folds.
(the sirens wailed. away you flew,
and i remain, bereft of you.)
