Love is like a crunchy leaf in the cooling temperatures of Fall
Hanging on for dear life wanting, needing, trying to muster the call
Suffering but gripping a branch in the powerful onslaught of relentless wind
Sometimes true love can hold on-but sometimes the leaves girth isn’t wide enough
As it loses its grip, the leaf, like love, dies and becomes part of the earth.

I am inhabited by the words of your mouth
Your mouth that inhabits and lingers in the air
The air that surrounds and drowns out my fears
My fears that resonate and inhabit these tears
These tears on my face drip down to my lips
My lips that part slightly and out comes a quip.
Trying to unravel these ravings that ravish my mind tied up as they are in time
The dirtiness abounds the cravings become and I try to behave like a normal being
Mortal wounds flare up and push me down as I fondle these letters in my soft hands
Unraveling feelings until raving and partying ravishes my mind warped in time.
