Valleys Whole

from Sunshine Remorse by Jon Hughes

/

lyrics

Given all these
Wakeful hours
To wasteful modes.
This stillness comes and goes and
Leaves you looking for the
Wherewithal to follow.

Waves pass through
Drifting in between
The abandoned buoys.
The sky is crowded with the
Stars of former selves —
Some loved, all lost.

Staring out from
Wind-torn beaches to
Broken seas;
He'll feel the weight of hollow
Promises you made —
Some for real, some for show.

You drift past
Swallowed mountains and
Valleys whole
Into the darkness of the
Dreamless night you wake —
Forgotten, forsaken.
