Sooner or later, lost at sea

(it’s not an if, but when with me)

I’ll name the brightest star for you

And let her guide me home again



Treasures clasped onto my limbs

Convince myself to stay

Pieces of earth tucked through my skin

Remind myself to stay


You’re as old as they are

Yet their glow is lifeless gray

Yours is heat, unhidden

Yet you weren’t meant to stay
