Where the Rivers Weep



The ocean on your skin
Delivered me to sin
As stars betrothed to dreams
Do the eyes they're in
Elevate the streams
Transmogrify my faith
Take the sweet exposure
That the Philistine would waste
Bless me as a river
Does the land it cleaves
Fill my empty vessels
With your briny seas
I would know the depths,
The darkness cannot keep-
Us in its Purgatory,
Where the rivers weep.
