Ink Fades

The ink on the page starts to fade
Abandoned my promises in the rain
A watermark soaked by a stain
the remaining words circle the drain.

My beating heart thrown in the sluice
Thin bark gouged on sun-lit roots
treadless soles on brand new boots
Dead barrel stare and no one shoots.

Now is a moment strung on a line.
A string of pearls doused in brine.

An army of fools stares at the night
weapons ready, no one to fight
a preacher stands and leans a little right
Pull the trigger and you'll see the light

The shining machine armored in mail
found a hero for all to hail
Follow his lead it's an easy trail
Touch his heart, they'll throw you in jail



Bitter words on the tip of my tongue
The fruit of many, the love of none
a single foot on the bottom rung
a full court for the trial of one.

How did I end with this pen in my hand
Refusal to bend ground me to sand
The distance between ocean and land
Apologies I don't understand… (Repeat two more times)


from Harvest the Heart, released March 30, 2013
