Pumping ice water through broken pipelines
Cradle easy arm open our mortality
Recognizing the impermanence of beating hearts
For a moment in unison they pounded against the earth like mallets
The rhythm of mothers hearts before we even drew breath

I did not know

We were drawing sheet music to our pulse
But just like your outline
It's drown out and buried by this planet own beat
Slowly, it fades away with time

Looking back and seeing the empty space
I wonder, if you really came from heaven
Filled with my warmth for your return
To see a miracle before you melt

Just as your image becomes clear
it's rolled down gutters
Black like mascara
If you could only tell me the truth
It's somewhere buried beneath
