In My HopeIn my hope,
I've found a peace.
The only hope I'll ever need.
God is good,
and love is greater.
All I know now,
is that I've made it.
The times I've been wrong,
the hurt I've caused,
are only my mistakes and not my flaws.
I'm allowed to be a mistake maker,
but I guess I'll never be a mistake.
I'm worthy of love.
In Those BonesI saw you at the bus stop,
Mercurial, but maybe ephemeral,
You don't look very much alive,
You can't last very long in those bones.
Your hair was in tendrils on the ground,
Your legs didn't seem to hold you,
Your eyes looked spiritless up at the sky,
Maybe you were floating, you can't hold yourself down very long in those bones.
Sinister sweetness in coffee breath,
Probably black but maybe sweetener,
Teeth yellowing, maybe smoking or bile,
You can't eat very much in those bones.
And in case I'm misreading the signs,
The red bracelet on your wrist,
The lanugo on your cheeks,
I hope I'm wrong, but you can't hide very well in those bones.
In Love HereWe fell in love here,
among the ruins.
Among the decrepit houses and broken wants,
drugs and drinks owning this town.
You asked if I liked donuts,
I said of course, delicious.
You spun the car in circles,
in that gravel lot over the bridge.
I asked if you wanted to be with me,
as we stayed up all night together speaking.
You gave me a tour of your room,
posters on the walls
We fell in love here,
where everyone was poor like us.
Among the ruins of a city,
that never made it far enough.
You asked if I liked it here,
I said this city is a dump.
You showed me old new places,
and I fell in love.
I fell in love here,
and I fell in love with here.
