Stay in my sight
I’m dead without reference
I’ve learned my tendency

With no one close enough to see
I feed all my enemies

Stand in the light
It loves to be on you
We best let it stretch our shape

If we get too lost in the days
Routine will find our darkest traits

But if we remember when we got to see the city with no lights on
Nothing washing out the stars except the fires in the front lawns
I believe we can keep them safe

I know my eyes
Were clouded without you
By words that I wrote before

There’s an ocean in my mouth
I forget how I was drowning

If we remember when we got to lay so quiet by the lakeshore
Under all the yellow tanagers that buzz around the scrub oaks
On the morning after you were there to see me hit my lowest low
I sincerely believe we will never be thieves
