Into the Night

how well i remember
eleven years ago
when i was lonely and undecided
watching the silver silk ocean
as night slowly spread across her breast
like thick purple honey
and my mind wandered three thousand miles
where it was already long into nighttime
and i imagined you were sending the gentle darkness
to swallow me in your love
even though i didn’t yet know
that i loved you

and i stand here now
eleven years later
when i am lonely but my heart is full
watching the city drift through scarlet sunset
as night slowly spreads from the east
like thick purple honey
and my mind wanders three thousand miles
where it is already long into nighttime
and i imagine you send the gentle darkness
to swallow me in your love
and my soul sings in the great knowing
that i love you.
