Genesis & Revelation

We tore the tree
in our front yard
and I told you
it wasn’t ours
the dirt returned
our love to us
and I gave back your heart

We bore burdens
only so far
before they burned
like bright lit stars
as earth returns
to spoken words
and we turn back to dust

Buried Them Down

I told you my secrets
and you told me “no more”
and if I’d known you were leaving
I would have buried them down
I would have buried them down

And I showed you my demons
and the devil at your door
and if I’d known they weren’t leaving
I would have buried them down
I would have buried them down
