with the tree @ 03:29 am

Current Mood: in the nest again
Current Music: "heartland' - u2

Break the habit
or change it
let it grow
or force it

once walked the dark night streets of this heartland
to let myself be absorbed into the emptiness...

now there is a lot less emptiness
and i walked a lot less

tonight was misty wet
couldn't see the moon anyway
though i know it's quite full

he picked me up at the end of the drive way
we drove nearly around the block
to the graveyard
that friends and i would go to
to sit and smoke and sing and play

he and i kissed and sucked and prayed
there behind his car
and
both of us excited
kicking off our clothes
to walk through the wet grass
over the graves
to a huge old pine tree
to make love with him too

so much went through me
so many questions
with no answers
leaving me glowing and floating and happy
with little drops of wet falling through the needles onto us...

part of me just wanted to lay naked there at the base of the tree
fall into sleep
and then walk home when i woke

but i let him drive me
back to here

say good night to him on the messanger

and write you this note
to see where the next days lead us
