Watermark Heart
from a balcony, to an elegy
from a watermark heart, to a widow's limousine
from a heart attack, to "I want you back"
from this guardian of doubts, to the last mile of track
an apology to set you free of me
 
and the dots in the sky fall across us 'til
the equator gives up on its symmetry
 
I wanted to, but the maps seemed so sure of themselves
the next ocean, maybe, this shoreline, those swells
through your eyes I see the sea
 
and the dots in the sky fall across us 'til
the equator gives up on its symmetry
 
from a last goodbye, to the next stranger's eye
from a watermark heart, to the bravest surmise
from a cemetery, to "You're still with me"
from this ghost of dismay, to the next faith you seize
an epiphany to bring you back to me
 
and the dots in the sky fall across us 'til
the equator gives up on its symmetry
 
I will not be one of the dots in the sky falling down on some soul
left behind in the beat of a watermark heart
