“secrets shatter like plates of glass”

scatter the sky into a million lost pieces
lock myself through the walls
behind every secret you tear apart my daydreams
fascinate to burn against my skin
climb the rollercoaster to withstand ageless color
a crack against my footstep
a wind breaks apart every drop of my last worry
cry out for tomorrow you hold me too deep to understand
secrets shatter like plates of glass
every direction fumbling in the dark
dream of the shipyard where we belong
hands crack behind the color-wheel
drifting through a million voices locked in the wind
will you resist me in the dark?
will you marry me past comprehension?
balloons break into dust
figures start to demand company
clouds start to separate you told me so
to skin a broken trespass
pretend to climb the wall in unity
locked where ambition holds me deep
I want to help you understand
photographs too brittle to touch
all I wish is coming true
all I wish is coming true
children laugh in the dark
grow up in this park
men with cathedral eyes pace the floor
choose the distance but don’t run too far
