star-falls & the divine
hunting down a wishing well
knowing that trying just means trying times and nothing else
making a case for naught
hungry hunters beg for hell
with prayers & time & spite just thrown in piles everywhere
don't lose heart
calm comes between the fits & starts
hold closer when the rift rips harder still
no part of this is wasted, love
we will grow hard but not apart
so if all our ends are stacked up in some cards,
and dealing hands, and this is ours?
i'd see it as a shame.
i'm not all for drawing straws, i fold.
casting lots... clutching to cards to throw...
i can't hold you if i'm holding those.
