"Well she's walking through the clouds, with a circus mind that's running wild."
-Jimi Hendrix, "Little Wing"

I held my hand

To the light;

I heard once that it takes the dark away.

With only a glimmer

Peeking through the shadows

I needed it to seep through my skin

So that my heart could be warm again.

I never wanted

The good to hide away;

All I wanted 

Was for it to claim me.


I hid the letter away

But the feelings never left

And instead of falling, like they should,

The tears only haunted me instead

And so I held my hand to the light

Because maybe, just maybe,

It would take me again.
