East to west
by Felicity J. Mackay

remain in this west vest writing you this song
As you vanish toward the east
Love slowly unravels inside this heart of mine
That has grown amidst my own private vine

Deposits of smoky melodies escape from these ears
Left to right, right to left, right to right, left to left
Tears appear but not from my fears
My heart leaps to a newfound beat that's been absent for years

Hands reach to me from behind
Grasping for these blackest hairs,
No, no, no, no, they say, do not despair
You are receiving the gift known as rare

Slide your soul back over here
And watch me shudder
While you cast another wish from your list
as I watch your awkward grin spiral into the darkness of this din
