Little Things

They tower over us, these placid rocks
It's funny when they speak so small
Think smaller, get your mind muddled
And then where do you go?

It's not that I don't comprehend
I'd rather ignore the obvious for my peace.

We have no space to live
When our souls are cluttered so
When your tongue's this sharp so
When my eyes are narrowed so.

It's not that I cant see
I just prefer make believe
Don't you?

I'm left with no words to rhyme
It's probably time, taking me down with it
A worrisome companion
I lag.

It's not that I cant hear you calling
I'd rather come of my own accord.

You leaned into me tonight
And after so long, I felt my breath get caught
An unsteady step can only take you so far
But it took me to you.

It's not that I cant live without you
It's just that I'd rather not.
