I want to write a song for you, let my overflowing heart pour out of my chest for you & tell you everything I’ve never said.
I want the letters to fall like rain – cascading down – so the words form a puddle at your feet & make you feel everything I’ve ever felt.
I want to sing a melody that sticks in your head like feathers to tar. so the notes always remind you of me.
But my fingers are numb & my voice is gone.
