Loving Mother,
What do you know
Of a sadness that comes and goes?

Dearest Sister,
Well, can you tell
Of a time we were sure of ourselves?

My last son,
My first mistake
Was to give you a heart that could break
So easily.

Baby brother,
It’s ever the same.
We’re sure we’re to blame. Always.

Long lost lover,
Did you run very far?
I wait on our front step
For a word of where you are.

A girl by my side,
She’s skipping stones.
She has her mother’s mouth,
Her father’s fragile bones.


from Long Lost / A History Of Iniquity, released July 15, 2011
