Unarmored

I was unfolding far to quickly
I was holding the best things that I had in my hand
I showed them to you
I told them to you
When I held it in view they look pretty sad
But I was happy just to say the words
See my reflected eyes in yours
My future infused with dragonflies and birds.
I built a plan from butterfly wings
Stuck together with spider webs and strings
It proved too delicate for sunlight.
I was unraveling, a halo softly traveling
The length of your body shining through the night.
I felt alone with you Friday night
Unarmored and enamored from the very first sight
I felt a piece of me come to light
And it left gentle ripples as it surfaced and took flight.
All my friends believe they know me
I’m not so sure myself but I let them believe
Cuz I know they care for me
They’re always there for me
They stick me together where I’d let me bleed.
So let this silence be my Coda
And there’s a lake in Minnesota
I swim there in dreams
Surrounded by trees
Deep blue and green
Quiet and Clean
I’m sober as day and you’re fading away
I’ll be damned if I’ll stay
And take this
I felt alone with you Friday night
Unarmored and enamored from the very first sight
I felt a piece of me come to light
And it left gentle ripples as it surfaced and took flight.
