because while some truths lend themselves to equations, others are best described in verse

as the year falls

the scent of secrets
lingers and i crush dry leaves
consciously underfoot,
listening half afraid
to their whispers of what
the darkness might bring.

    I have a special love for tiny poems, and I love this one, especially. 🙂
