Leafy Greens

When we are together and alone I unfurl like a leaf,

Spilling everything inside of me that I've kept all the week.

And since the sun must also die one time each night,

I leave the window cracked open and turn on a light.

And I wait for you to come back once more,

Hoping you've kept all the keys to open my door.

And if you did, I will be here and ready

And the way we feel will hold us steady.
