Enough, enough and so to sleep
Without a dream or answer deep
From the cobbler’s castle keep
My longing makes a leap

Awaking with such laudable strains
Abounding audible in my brain
Meaningful morsels, muck and mane
The not knowing is such pain

Are all these songs that I get in the middle of the night coming from you?
Your subtlety sometimes is like a blinding light. What’s a boy to do?

Messages that the songs convey
Will sometimes drain my doubt away
But then again the very next day
“It’s artifice”, I’ll say

When will my longing cease?
Have I spent enough time on my knees?
Do I have demons to release
To hear the holy breeze?
If feelings weren’t just chemicals
Arriving in their ports of call
If they were tangible at all
I might avoid this fall
…Reach out and touch the space…
Right here
Behind my face
I’m opening the door
But it don’t work no more
I am a mess of nerves…
Exposed and weathered at the curves
But the one who’s blessed is the one who serves
So here…have some hors d’oeurvres

I ask that you would calm me down
Gently bring me back around
To a place I once had found
Quiet, holy ground

This rhyme scheme is strained at best
And draws attention to my jest
So please just hollow out my chest
And give me holy rest

Are all these songs that I get in the middle of the night coming from you?
The way you leave it all so hazy just ain’t right
…Is that you comin’ through?
