just sleep,
the beauty of this place
will seep into your very blood;
I'll see that you aren't woken up
(how can I find my way out?
I dug this hole all by myself with
“no more poems on napkins”
and “I left the notebook on its shelf”)

and it's slowed to just a trickle now
but I wish that it was pouring out because there's so much here to write about.

all the leaves are turning brown; they're falling from their branches
and landing at my feet,
but I can only make a sound,
a word of adoration,
for what's surrounding me.

make it up from here,
but I can't make it up from here,
so I won’t wake you up, my dear
so I won't...

all the leaves are turning brown; they're falling from their branches
and landing at my feet,
but I can only make a sound,
a word of adoration,
for what's surrounding me.

and I just want to write
with everything inside.
and I just want to write
with everything inside.
and I just want to write
with everything inside.
