Lay back down beneath

I don't wanna say redemption

Though there's no better word

To hang it on.. 

..But it does no justice

To the hell that we made a come back from

 

I guess It's floating down the river

I guess it's howling at the moon

I guess it goes without saying

After all that we've been through

 

I guess it's hidden in the inhales

Of the words that we don't speak

I will stand beside you

Until we both

Lay back down beneath. 

 

I don't wanna use absolution

Though there's no better bed

To lay it on.. 

..But it does no justice

To where we were and where we both belonged

 

I guess it's blowing through the tree tops

I guess it's a summers night in June

I guess it goes without saying

After all that we've been through

 

I guess it's hiding in plain sight now

Every time our tired eyes meet 

I will stand beside you 

Until we both 

lay back down beneath.

    'I guess it's hidden in the inhales
    Of the words that we don't speak'..
    a wonderfully paced write, with incisive use of imagery and natural flow
    thanks for sharing dear poet
