when the whirlwind was born between my bones
my lungs were breathing waves
my heart was pounding stone
my hand a daydream's grave and hesitation's home

a tree who's casting its roots around to find her
I am left wondering if my blood will still stir
once the Westerlies have prevailed inside of me
I will throw away all of the maps that I have made

as the whirlwind was hauling through my heart
I felt my trembling pulse
I felt my ribcage part
I saw the splitting bones
and knew you'd leave a scar
