HUSH

Goodbye monsoon
Sit by the window, staring
The play of light
Knotted in ruffled hair
You never care how you look
A day in the life of
A butterfly, caterpillar icky-ick
Hazy steps sleepwalking
Life has become you
Leave this all in a heartbeat
Toes dig into sand
Of fantasies coloring every waking breath
Where do I separate fact from fiction
Splash of cold water
I don’t even flinch
Scattered in a puddle and rest
Till you tap the surface and chant my name
Spill into your open hands
Take me along
