Lover's Song

It’s a word and a hunger
Sea swept in grey
Crushing burden into the sands
So swept away

In the shallows I lay
To bathe in a word
And a hunger
To bathe in lust, my lover

Oh, lover
This hurt will leave as clouds
A moon, silver rimmed
Dappling the stars

Night creeps, like song
In sand and waves,
so long
It has been

A word and a hunger
A lover’s song.

Artist's Description

A lover’s song
Heart in throat
Words on the tip of my tongue

Well, I know
You are the only one.
