halloween is creeping up on us,
the leaves have said their final goodbye to their branches, 
autumn killing summer with a gentle kiss,
poisoned with copper and cedar, 
shops stocking goods that fill my childish heart, 
nostalgia rushing through my veins as i sing at the top of my lungs to songs i learnt years ago, 
songs i wish i could hear for the first time all over again, 
when i followed strangers into fields with beautiful views, 
and spent lonesome nights scribbling on paper, 
when i first began to write,
my mind dusting away it’s cobwebs, 
opening the blinds and letting in the reviving sun, 
renewal of a skill i now cherish, 
and yet i hold onto my branches, 
the ones that gave me what i have now,
is it time to let go like all of the other leaves? 
only time will tell, 
it is autumn now after all.
