like moons hold on tides inside the eyes of lovers

 

 

step across the line if you know loneliness by it's first name

 

 

Speaking Swahili to an American Moon

 

 

Rippling like halos held together by faith

 

 

Rise, like moonshine tugging tides

 

 

Letters from a single mother lifted by the stars in your child's eyes

 

 

Get to high, lose sight of little things, like granny's cooking

 

 

I'm not looking for mountains to climb, get to high

 

 

this why kids wanna stay up late, conversate with the creator 

 

 

thank you Nujubes for the notes you ripped from Heaven's throat.
