I have never looked at the sky the same
since that night darkness was ours
and city landscape beneath our fingertips,

and skin
and love
and lust

and trust body before me engraving words into my bones
you control me, I'll be your puppet till Dawn--

but once he came he was gone


august stones beneath our feet
I felt you there
august homes, patterns of streets
take me there



sidewalk gray with words we both say too quickly
field of ancient light above our heads,
tell me why tonight, meaningless unsaid

do you remember stranger on the street?
two in the morning when three is company
you were my company, all I...

and when you called to let me know
you were alright, you got home alright
I took a breath of relief and then one of worry
to realize that you'd only used me when you said
what you said, never meant one thing; meaningless unsaids
you never really ever told me goodbye

august stones beneath our feet
I felt you there
august homes, patterns of streets
take me there
