Track Name: Weight of a Hummingbird
We've been spinning in this room. Heads lost in quilted looms. The curtain opens, she's on display. Her hazel eyes fill me up. Deep in soprano cup.

She's music to my ears.

There were rows and rows of paper lanterns. Colors bouncing off the walls in a cross-stitch pattern.

I wrapped my hands round her waist—forming a perfect embrace.

The weight of a hummingbird and unified hearts beat—flitter, fluttering in sync. She is me, and I am we.

And the way she spins. Oh, the way she spins had me convinced it would be ok if this was the end.

Is this the end? I'm sure it is.
