I lit the lantern light in the river
and I saw you there upon its bank
You made a motion to come but I was already there
I slid my icy hand up the middle
of your paralyzing shoulder blades
I had been meaning to tell you but you would figure it out

We cut the night into earth and a morning made of
flower petal ornaments
I heard you laughing and knew we wouldn’t turn back around
The sky had opened right up the middle
and the face was white and permanent
It was under our feet, it was a blanket of sound
We were eloping in the slowing air

Calming water, soil and peat as our bed, as our home
We choose our own
We don’t need anymore
In your eyes I see myself
In your ideal selfless love
We don’t talk
We don’t need anymore

We are eloping
While the earth is loaming
We are lost in the slowing air.
