Companions Peak

Don’t be easy on me
As I’m wandering knee high in the debris
Don’t kiss me and cradle my thoughts
“Oh please do I’m so tied up in knots “
For I have seen the blackbird streaking past
With blackened eyes of glaring glass

He returns to me every evening to dine on my soul
Now it’s time to check for damage control
He fills my mind with wanderer’s thoughts and dreams
Careless as it seems
Do wait for me in the whiskey light
For it is there I won’t put up a fight

Crippling strain of liquid dark splendor
Where the moon lights once caressed me to surrender
Twisted up cords of steel
Do teach me I should feel
For I was once a child of implicitly
Now I carry the luggage imperfectly

Please don’t be easy on me
For far too long you've been my devotee
Making me real and transparent true 
With open arms and eyes of sky blue 
Do kiss me and breath into my ear 
For the wind of time has shaken our chandelier
