hammock



the wind is ripping through my heart
and you're still sound asleep
He has hidden all the stars tonight
(maybe just from me.)

gusts shake the tree i'm sleeping in
and rumble in my brain
i close my eyes and listen for
the mountain destined train.

my dreams are full of shadows
and songs i've never heard
a girl watches the skyline
and a boy slides into third.

i wake up to the sounds of grace,
spilling from the leaves,
there is freedom from the darkness
for the girl who still believes.

xx
