the weight, the wait, the way that we've been
the late, delayed, awakening.

the fate, the fade, the lesson we leave

the ceiling, the mattress, how I cram in between
the me I've been won't let himself sleep.

the wait, the weight, the me that I am.


from If We Could Only Let Go, released December 4, 2015
