luna of the marshes

this road beneath the yawning sky
I trail loose ends I need to tie
how many times I've walked with you
I'm here to tell you something true
you've listened in & held apart
the darkest secrets of my heart
my confidante in times of pain
I've come to watch you wax & wane

when I have nowhere left to hide
I feel you standing by my side
if I could cut my life in two
the better half would all be you
I stand here battered by the world
all my ambitions have unfurled
can't be too sure how much is real
but gratitude is all I feel
