Your Name

Your name flows out of the tap
It hides in the steam
It escapes my fingers

Your name rings with every drop of rain
It is written on windows and mirrors

Your name is easier to whisper

Your name smoothed the memory
Your name is the weight we carry
Your name has become our silence

Your name knocks softly on doors
And it brushes my hand
And it becomes easy
And it loses meaning
As I’m losing you

Sweet Night

Sweet night
Hanging like a heavy cloak on my tired soul
You take me back to forgotten places
Where strength used to be draped in tenderness
And time quietly lifted
Sweet night
I used to see my mother weep at the sight of beauty
You let me weep on bathroom walls
It feels empty and lost
To hurt because of a beautiful thing
Sweet night
Sing me a lullaby until sunrise
Lay a kiss on my heavy eyelids
And let me drown in dreams.
