hiding leaves beneath my tongue
i circle prey like a whirlpool
and keep lyrics under the stairs
every night.

i hear your playful wallows bringing sores
to the roof of your mouth from here
my heaven
numbers and letters in an epitaph,
mangling sweet stairs.

i wish you wouldn't waltz down here
but you always do, seeing him out
the door and decorating the room
with your smile.

then i imagine all of you blood red
and laugh myself to sleep,
singing like a bird exposed to winter
dreaming of stealing you with
the mouth of the fox,
your staircase body climbing
into my stomach.

your wallows would bubble up
and transform my laughter beautiful
i'd escape to the place beneath the stairs.

in love with all the graves i've set,
i'll never let you free.

rains all day.

Gorgeous. There's an emotion to it that doesn't have a name.

i really like the first two stanzas and overall it is good. leaves, dying vestigials. and stairs being more unique than stars while still bringing stars to mind.
