Where do you go when you don’t come back?
Beyond the moon and into the black
Somewhere past the brightest star
Into the nothing and twice as far
Cold and lonely?
Or bold and bright?
Where do you wander at the dead of night?
Into the forest and past the trees
I hear your name in the softest breeze
Sometimes I remember your name and face
Thinking of you in some far off place
When you’re gone for so long
Where do you go?
Can you ever remember all the things that you know?
Can you ever return after you’ve left?
Can you really come home, back to my breast?
Will I ever stop missing you?
Will I ever be free?
Will there ever be a time for you and for me?
I don’t know the answer
And I don’t think I will
I think of you often
Wracked by the chill
I ask myself questions that I’ll never know
When will I move forward, when will I grow?
I bury these thoughts with worms in the ground
Inevitably, of course, they circle back ’round
Where do you go when you don’t come back
Past the moon and beyond the black
Will there be a time when I know you again?
Will you reach from beyond me before it all ends?
You know I won’t wait for you
Despite what you want
Once you leave a home it’s not yours to haunt
