tumbled, if you will
fell on steps that were friendly and familiar
and kept my eyes open
the songs kept playing in the next room
while i laid still, knowing every word.
eager to sleep yet happy to still be awake
inside this fence, in no rush to leave
instead of getting pushed out
it felt like family.
and laying next to a beating heart
i've craved running. and i've craved standing still.
but mostly i've just craved this
