Your Moonshines by Melodie Yvonne Ramey
How do I accept this blessing
without falling completely apart?
How do I build myself up,
and then turn and break my own heart?
How do I follow my starlight
when that moonshine’s so bright inside yours?
How do I unstick these hinges,
and shut you behind and lock all these doors?
I just want my eyes to stop leaking,
but your moon controls the tides on my shore,
and these salty tears are all floodin’
right down my face as I fall to the floor
I’m here on my knees and I’m prayin’
How do I give just a little away
to keep my heart safe and protected,
and let my eyes, mind, and fate lead the way?
