protector (the lover's cry)

from by rachele eve



I sat in silence
I ran through the grass
it was taller than I could digest

you came upon me and straightened my back
you stood a statue,
my protector protecting me

you laid me down so I could have my rest and I slept fearlessly

then posed and apart you asked that I leave you
you stood that statue,
my pretender

I couldn't save you, I ran with the dogs
we were dying and I had been lying to myself

I laid you down, the thought of us to rest,
but our kiss and the ocean-- how could they pretend?
we can lay this down, the healing lover's cry
save me no longer, just rest here beside me


from Our Love Is Imagined, released February 18, 2014
