starless;;;

                                                                                            &quiet

                              we tiptoe through the

                                                                                            night.

                                i crawl///in&out
                                         of my s   k   i   n

becoming                 &       allowing               &        creating 
                                                                                           a new

                                                     life
                                                                                            a new
                                                     self

                                                              everyday&everynight
you let go
and hold on 
                                            & I GET LEFT
                                       naked+ alone+ and starless
