once, i looked out the window

once, i looked out the window at midnight

once, i looked out the window at midnight when the world had

once, i looked out the window at midnight when the world had snuggled into the blanket

once, i looked out the window at midnight when the world had snuggled into the blanket of uneasy sleep

once, i looked out the window at midnight when the world had snuggled into the blanket of uneasy sleep.

i heard

i heard the whispers of flowers

i heard the whispers of flowers and the cries of trees

i heard the whispers of flowers and the cries of trees echoing across the

and it grew colder as i callously went back to bed, oblivious to what it meant

and it grew colder as i callously went back to bed, oblivious to what it meant.
