while you stuff your moods, i wait

fold me
into a blanket
you lay over your lap
let me stay warm with you–
the sky can burst
into a billion drops of rain
while fire howls
inside the gulley
though it pulls my heart
i love only you

o sinclair!

you really don't need lines six through nine to make something like a poem, but without its expansion on your feelings it would make the poem seem silly. i think you need to re-find the thought and feelings in stanza two and make a more brilliant transition between the physical and the emotional stanza.

This is my favorite poem of yours. I'd like to frame it and sell it at Wal-Mart.
J/k. It would definitely be a Mall piece. But there would only be one and the price would go up with every offer. So it would eventually just go home with me.

lol, wal-mart is dead to me. you should try the tackle shop down the street. buy some beer why you're there, drink yourself to a levy.
