that moment of release entering sleep.
that second when time becomes slow motion,
and the world delivers secrets to keep
much more profound than the deepest ocean.
resting under our hearts’ dreamy feelings,
there hidden a light shadow of gray.
into dark, our hearts continue sinking-
just a little color would save the day.
so come and lead me by the hand to you.
i’ve been here sitting, staring at the sky.
my innocence has led me here to you,
and i have learned to stop asking why.
awaiting something that’s just a feeling,
anything to keep me from just dying.
