safe haven

I don’t know where you are,
But if your heart hurts tonight
I wanted you to know that I’ll do the bleeding this time
Because my eyes have been just as tired,
Peering out at the world through clouded lenses.
Empty swimming pools behind barred windows,
Little paper cups full of pills, meant to make us ordinary
It seems like we may never get the hang of this game they want us to play
Or figure out how to make sense of the tides
Which carry our minds away to bigger places.
But maybe tonight, I could meet you at the lighthouse
And as the stars pulse through our veins,
We could get carried away-
Together.
Maybe tonight, you could be inside my head
And I in yours.
And the world might be as beautiful as we were always meant to see it.
Maybe tonight,
You don’t have to be alone.
