Stay

IMG_2073

i feel you drifting
lightyears from where i stay
our centre’s shifting
if i begged would you stay?

if i begged you
would you stay and
throw your heathen thoughts away?

who led your heart astray
to make you execute my joy
in the broad of day
that’s my sun
turning into bolts of grey
as i watch you drifting
lightyears from where i lay
if i bribed you
would you stay?
