sleeping on my own now, unaltered
a tugging at my chest, unrelenting
anxious afternoon perplexions, unanswered
a colored, winding, displaced dream, now ending

time for a callback, you wanted to hear from me
and have i got a story for you.

I was at your doorway
I had something clutched within my hands
But as reached for your face
I realized no one was home - trip, slip, down i tumble
and now my precious gifts are scattered
among your pretty heart-shaped plants.
