Departure Never Leaves

from Ode To The Urchin - Creeping Myrtle by Randal Prater



The fever burns you up inside like friendly fire
It’s been a while since paranormal love was dry and free
From fate and endless time
The sunshine blinds your dry lipped smile

Can’t you see the light I’ve left for you behind the sun?
I’ve waited here a hundred years
I guess I’ll wait a hundred more

This lonely apparition aches and mourns the death of love undone
The stars are cold and uninviting and they suck the sound away
The sunshine blinds your dry lipped smile

Behind the sun
Behind the sun
