i've closed my eyes one too many times
in the middle of the night
when every exhale is a sigh
in the cold wind of the winter sun
i've drawn blood from paper
drawn blood onto my flesh

my skin tingles at the thought of your name
my heart sinks when the sun won't stay
when the trees turn sickly and bare their skeletons
i'll hide until the snow melts so i can sink into the earth
