baby blue

daddy's going to sleep tonight
my baby blue don't cry, don't cry
you know I'll always stay with you
my baby blue, my baby blue
a gentle breeze to dry a tear
a pretty song, no birds are near
you've filled my heart with love and pride
I'll take it with me to the other side
smile baby blue, I'll be alright
your daddy's going to sleep tonight

like honey

images dribble from her lips
like honey
spreading across my mind
shading my reason
and her gaze
as orange petals fall
drift in a scent of magnolias
and rake my body
as a combine rapes the earth
to plant a seed
