4 am on the 18th October 2016

ps; I was up early this morning and ideas flowed to scribble some words. Enjoy! x

October is crawling on all fours
Its skinned knees and aching arms
are trying to move with its staggered breathing.

October’s chest is heaving,
naughty children are making
monkey bars out of his rib cage,
October is too kind to shoo them away

October smiles at passersby,
they know his name but keep forgetting
how he looks like because of the way
his autumn eyes keep changing

October is tired, his heavy sighs
shake leaves off sturdy branches
October wants to be known for more
than just his fall.

Love, Leya πŸ’œ
