You come softly, I don't notice
until it's too late
and there you are
in my mind again
in my heart

You circle me like the sun
round and round
and in a burst of thunder
I am under

Is this the last fall?
The one that tumbles me
down the rabbit hole
and into a whole new world
that doesn't exist with you?

If I drink up these last drops
of our time together
Maybe I will see the glass
as empty as it is
and my mind and heart will follow

    To empty one's mind is a good practice.

    because something is tugging at my heart.

  12. Very nice text, it reminds me to a couple of birds doing their mating dance, well we are the same as them when it comes to the basic stuff.
