1. "Winter calls on me"
Winter calls on me
Like a girl swaying through a field
Singing in a dream
Sparkling in morning
Sunlight for a sunless world
2. "Some nights"
You know you've been neglected
As awake as the moon
Angry as the stars
A room too hot to melt into dreams
Too still to pace a heart correctly.
Some things go noticed-
Lights and lungs
Incessant; familiar; shorter lived than their successor
I wish my ears were double stitched-
inside and out-
I know my mind is not-
At least that would muffle;
Or muddle into subconscious momentum
The world that should be kept outside
And there are those nights-
Left empty as you exhale-
Where screams of mocking laughter ring
So you force attention to your decaffeinating heart.
