terri is my sister. she is an angel who has a history of running away... but her sweetness and beauty always keep her hopeful in the darkest of scenarios... i wrote this during one of her excursions ~ because all i have ever wanted to do was carry her to safety. she is safe now. ....i love you terri.


the operator on the line
she didn’t recognize the signs
that we were sending

a bloody lip awash of sound
became the message underground
there were no words

i see you
tangled in ivy
while searching for gold
if i promise
i won’t let them hurt you
will you come with me
can i carry you home

and as the snow falls on your face
you start to realize this place
it lived inside you

but did we not dream long ago
that we would one day play a show
and change the world

i see you
sketching her portrait
in the ruins of rome
if i promise
i won’t let them hurt you
will you come with me
can i carry you home
