I hardly know where to begin
Windows open, sun falls in
I won't be going outside today
I just don't want to get in the way
And that's just what I'll be doing

A plastic heart pumps no real blood
It lies very still awaiting the flood
Sleep well darling I'm on my way

I saw your light a thousand miles from here
It called me back but I went further still
Across endless deserts and dying ground
And since this mornin' I haven't made a sound

    General CommentI envy people like Seth Avett who are able to put such beautiful and powerful words to feelings we all have but don't know how to express. This is pure poetry.
