the circle

out past horizons
mountain ranges rise between
but there is not enough distance to leave you
inches away but no closer
galaxies turn unseen
after our lips part
no there is no end
there is no start

out past the oceans
our eyes trace the curve of the world
but there is no city that can make us new
stitch us together no closer
galaxies spin apart
as we drift away
without beginning
unending

hold it all together
hold it all together
the loves and deaths it will weather
waiting on the ending
hold together the circle
that has no beginning

rising over horizons
sailing to the ends of the oceans
the dying galaxies to guide us
to warm us to light our eyes
held together with sand and water
the waves lapping at our skin
