The Downing

A Collaborative Effort with Jewel.

I knew what I wanted to write. It had been bouncing about in my head for days, begging to be released. Who to write it with? None other than Jewel. Musical selection (that I shared with Jewel and asked her to listen to and *feel* what needed to be written) is Down by Marian Hill.

And, you have come to

Save Me.

How nice of you.

How not…

We are here and not here
At the same time, drifting…
The sea of forgiveness is willing

Down. Down. Down…

Is where we will go.
Are you ready?


Trust that was engineered wistfully to create
A bond out of dreams before it was late
Crumbled with our concrete structure


And the heart that raced a mile
With every anticipated smile
Now aged, torn, limping
With veins for arms reaching


We could manage this thing
Better with wings, instead
We have gills, breathing isn’t
Supposed to be this hard,
But, giving up would be worse,
Instantly meeting a

Down. Down. Down…

And, there will never be
A way back up.
