Best of Me

Home / home / Best of Me

You have been the best of me,
You are the whetstone
Smoothing each ragged breath
Caught in my sandstorm chest.
You leave candles burning
In all your windows
So I can always find you
In my darkness.
You harness the hurricane in me,
Always leave me tea and toast
To warm my brittle bones,
You sail my gunship home.
You are every holy sunrise
In my mourning heart
When I have been sure
The dawn would fail me.
Your hand pressed against the
War between my shoulder blades
Is my safe haven.
