She feels in italics and thinks in CAPITALS. ~Henry James

running with rabbits the wind cries don’t stop
running with rabbits grass is all i’ve got
running with rabbits so i‘m not alone
spring rushes through me so i know i’m home

running with rabbits when my fingers are numb
capture the air don’t forget to breathe some
wildflowers barely budded but here i’m awake
cause right now life is all give no take

i spend my days walking on a tightrope
i spend my nights pulling him up the slope
but i’d rather learn the world the rabbits’ way
the trees have no expectations that i’ll stay

running with rabbits till i’m out of time
he gives me words and draws every line
i need a mile or a minute or an open field
to catch my breath so i know i’m real

running with rabbits so i can renew
things that are justified like me without you
running with rabbits my heart smiles and then
brand new starts spring can watch me live again
