"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds ways to kneel and kiss the ground." - Rumi


You had me wrapped around
Your pretty, little finger
In a golden band of love and trust
And a dream that always seemed to linger

All that I am, all that I was
Was yours to hold and yours alone
To keep me in a special place
Of your heart to call me home

All that we knew, we solely believed
That love was all we'd ever need
Our eyes were closed, a fevered dream
A leap of faith that made me scream

Oh, how good it felt to be so wrong

Have you ever heard the song called "Fever Dream" by Bon Iver? One of my favorites. That inspired me to write this.

Oh gosh... I'm sorry. The song "Fever Dream" is by Iron & Wine. That's just slightly embarrassing, haha.
