Fearless house in the void
Floats through the universe
I planted trees, gardens
A porch light you can see for miles.

It can’t reach me here

I built my world

I left behind familiar walls
And a soul with knives for words
A door bricked shut, a smiling hook
Fear of fresh air

I built my world

I wish you’d join me if just for a while
I’m easy to fine, only house for miles
The only house for miles.
Come over. Come over.

In this new place of mine
No sunrise or sunset
But even still, I sent you
The address, just in case...


from Patchwork Life, released May 22, 2012
