I Know

Salting the silence, boiling my blood,
giving and honest is not thick enough.
And now have you gone easy, let your lines get caught?
Some sink and some carry and you will not,
No, you will not know
if it holds you
'till you set straight where you're going to.
You'll not know ‘till it breaks us,
pulls you under, if you'll give up.   
You'll not know.

For what is this comfort?  Is it asking too much,
when you hold me in hunger and I feel your touch?
When I feel your touch,
I know
where the day ends.  All my lines meet
the horizons.
I know, I know, I know
I can do this and the hard days
I won't miss.
I know, I know, I know, I know
like it's scarred in
where my place is; where I'm going.
I know, I know, I know
I'm a lost one.
And it's too late.  I'm far gone.
