KSL (July 18,1991 / Clarksdale, Mississippi)

You Know

Only you'd know
Why my body's still.
No life in my bones.
No life to will.

You and I know
Who caused my pain.
My last uttered words.
My eyes' last rain.

Could you have known:
The depths of my soul,
My lies and my secrets,
The hearts that I stole?

Only yours though
Was too far from my reach.
I studied its beating-
Turned ears when it'd teach.

Lost is my glow
And the song in my spirit,
But here in your arms
I think I can hear it.
