Before the Storm

“If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything”

might be why I fall for your glow

every time

I walk into a room,



the seasons are in bloom

but I’m terrified of what lurks deep below,

will you take my hope in the dead of night

and marry her to the moon?

I fall for this game

I fall for the crazy

I call for your name

make a crown of the daisies

that grew up like all’s well

no squall fell

and drowned down


my sunshine,

will your arms prop me up

in the dark

of summer’s terror?

I stand for nothing in this sea

begging of you

“be the light,

bleed winter’s knees

spill the fuel

spark my heart enough to fight.”
