my hundred thousand thoughts,

they fly apart

before i can pin them neatly

in a row

i wanted to tell you something

of how i walked alone

in the dark

as the rain fell about my ears

and freckled up my face

i wanted to write

you something

beautiful

and poetic

and tell you all the things

in my heart

but i’m so tired

tonight

and the words

won’t

line up right

i wanted to say something

big

or important

like how much i

love you

but

sometimes

when you’re talking

i know i

tune you

out

and when i read

those letters

i skim right over

the love

in every line

your face is

hazy

i think i’m

crazy but

i know i’m not

i just forgot

who

i am

you washed my

dirty broken feet

and made

me

leap

so when i walk alone

in the dark

and the rain dances

down my eyes

you hold

my little beggar’s hand

in yours

and night is sunrise
