Poetry Friday: Room by Jillian Edwards

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Room by Jillian Edwards

With all of my heart, I'm racing
Watch the page as it turns out
You would read all of me had you the chance
You'd never put me down
Please don't put me down

I get a little bit restless
You just gotta give me time
I get a little bit insecure, a little bit bent
I get a little bit everything every now and then

But there's room for you here
Oh, if you take it all
Got so much room for you here
Yes, I pray you lay your head down here

So take it all
Take it like you would your childhood
The street you lived
You ride your bike
The whole world there inside your eyes
I'll find the water's deep
The river's wide
I've got nothin' but time

This is steady and sure and clear as the wind
That I see the other side of me in you
That I've got nothing but room for you here

- selected lyrics from Room by Jillian Edwards

"So take it all
Take it like you would your childhood
The street you lived
You ride your bike..."

It's a beautiful song. Give it a listen if you're so inclined. :) Happy Poetry Friday!

Yesterday I finished listening to THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN. So much of this resonates with the book and the experience of "reading" it.

I have not read that book yet, but I've heard of it. Think I'd enjoy it?
