You put me here

inspired by In the Middle of this Nowhere

Hammock — In the Middle of this Nowhere (Oblivion Hymns)

You put me here

You put me here for a reason,
for a dance through time
to a hymn made solely for this soul:
lifting me tottering to gaze at your face,
lighting a path through Cimmerian spells,
whispering love into labyrinths
I created to try to escape you.

You take the wreckage washed upon your shore
and devotedly restore what was riven,
into a vessel made to dance
upon the waters you once walked.
