love takes your shape

tell me how to love you best

with words that feel softest on your body

and pivot your heart godward

 

tell me how to love you best

at sunrise, to the sound of you coming

 

tell me how to love you best

when the world has weathered you

when a slammed door

sets you running from a buried memory

when hope becomes ash on your tongue

 

tell me how to love you best

and tell me how it changes

 

tell me how to love you best

when every day is deadly

 

tell me how to love you best

and tell me how to feed you

 

tell me how to love you best

and tell me how it changes

 

tell me, so i can show you

that love is water

and you are its ocean
