Tear me away from the streets
the numbers and the hopeless
Bring out the whiskey
Bring out the laughter
A day long and full
rare moments of grace
lifting us up.
Tear me away from the spine
chilling monsters in my sleep
Those that scurry and threaten
the peace
Bring out the sunshine
Bring out your firelight
Keep your books open
to worlds you can’t get enough of
Tear me away from the screens
and the rhythm of upside down
thoughts of worthlessness
Bring out the cats meow
Bring out the right now
Kissing in the eves
life eclipsed by nothing
