Stay visible

The road opens wide
And there is space here for two of us
If I could slip under the wire
We'd wait here
Just stay here while
Slumped, my body's tired and this fear
It never lets me sleep
In your smile
This trial elates
And in your eyes
I see mothers open gates

If fortune could smile
There'd be room here for two of us
And I would burn myself through the wires
With this hate
Concentrated
Unearthed
Disparate
All of this time

Once in a while
If peace held for two of us
Or if we could show mercy awhile
White patience
Transcending
This coldness, never ending, thru time

Because if home still matters
And if these bones,
Were not so battered
What state then
I'm so desperate,
Stuck within a hollow shell, in some forgotten state
Come tear the dirt from my eyes
