I usually don't like posting a new song or poem only a day or two after I just posted something, but what the hell. I've been writing a lot lately and it's scratching to be let out. So, this.

Stumbling Back to You

Every falling tear
from the eye of the sky
it's raining nails here
I'm conquered where I lie
every drop of blood
a rush hour in my veins
spilled on the page my love
now only you and I remain

I hear your laughter in the rainfall
I seek your beauty in the dark
I listen to the throat of the night call
freezing until you lit the spark
I'm running I'm flying
christened by your smile
I'm numb but I'm trying
to crawl back to you in style

Stumbling back to you
if it's the last thing I do
you know you're the crazy glue
that put me back together
ship shape for any kind of weather
you set me anew
so I'm stumbling back to you
if it's the last thing I do

Every rising fear
scratching in my bones
it's raining hammers here
I dream in whispers and moans
every drop of money
tonight we'll make it rain
cashed in my dreams honey
now only you and I remain

I seek your beauty in the rainfall
I hear your laughter in the dark
I listen to the tempo of the night fall
blinded until you lit the spark
I'm running I'm flying
christened by your thighs
still numb but I'm dying
to crawl back into your eyes

Stumbling back to you
if it's the last thing I do
you know you're the crazy glue
that put me back together
ship shape for any kind of weather
you set me anew
yeah I'm stumbling back to you
if it's the last thing I do

Every falling tear
from the eye of the sky
it's raining nails here
I'm conquered where I lie
every rising fear
scratching in my bones
it's raining hammers here
I dream in whispers and moans
so I'm stumbling back to you
if it's the last thing I do
stumbling back to you
baby that's all I need to do
love is never gonna be the same
my love
oh my honey
now only you
and I
remain

Too bad lyrics have to suffer with no forum of their own. The repetitious nature of some gives them distinctions not always found in one's view of poetry.
