Not Dreaming

Story ring design: Lightning, bear claw, sun, moon, star, forest, rain, wind

I said and I said I was through missing the smell of cows in pastures I was finished yearning for woods without paths and trails desolate and wet and I was over needing love I had too many mornings waking up to the same weather, the same low clouds, the same wind too many times, too many times I hoped for blossoms in winter I said I had enough of love I had enough of lipstick I had enough of perfume but I had never loved someone like you
