Laugh with me
Help me grow old
Ease me with tales of your gold
Tell me the story of each piece of silver 
Their meaning each treasure to you

Laugh with me 
Help me embrace 
The glitter life’s splayed ‘cross my face
Tell me you’ll seek me, need me, keep me
As we walk in our soul’s shoes 

August Against The Red

Only for me, look up at the black?

Count by 1000’s as you brush your jaw.  Be warm?

When you kick up your legs and close your eyes, recount to me the silver you saw?

Oh say, did you find the quiet I lost as August echoed against the red?
