and she spins stars into the sky.


october wind
leaves in my hair
the little girl spins and spins and
s p i n s 
weaving stars in the sky
until the pile of crinkly autumn leaves
fall at her feet.
fairy dust and glitter
in her eyes
the boy walks over, 
 their eyes light up.
i can almost hear their heartbeat
bu-thump bu-thump bu-thump
hugs. laughter. kisses.
the world is full of beauty.
how simple love is. how beautiful. how kind.
but my arms are the only ones that will hug me.
so i wrap my coat tighter around my body
and walk away quietly,
the sound of laughter drowning in my mind.
what about me
what about me

Oh, how I love October wind.

Thanks for your comment!

P.S. Your profile picture is so charming and frankly, I'd fancy being a "professional music listener", as well. :D
