the orchestra of us

Play with me
I will hide my hands
and let you pick the parts of me
you haven’t been calling
but I still hear you.

Your tune
like, something I can’t get out of my head
messy hearts
and I will never forget
the way you can be gentle
the way you can be cruel.

This high key
vibrates and lingers
I felt it leaving through your fingers
and I wanted to sing
but I lost my voice
when I gave in


I want to be drowned
in an overture of something else

    Nicole – you have a way of cutting right to the heart of it with searing, moving, heart-rending images. And yet for all of that, there is so much incredible beauty in everything you write!!
