When they walked into the room,
tip toeing, butterflies in their heads,
all of the oxygen went into their lungs
along with the stars I clung to so desperately.
I should’ve stayed asleep today.
But would my slumber fail you?
would they knock on my bedroom door?
fists of the sunlight I cannot see without.
