Monday is a Mountain

Climbing over your mountain baby, stuck in the alpine. Focusing on the transition, of relating to me. I've been carrying some weight now honey, over time. I'm ready to drop the baggage, but its stuck on my mind. The peak is in view, with no direct path. I'm avoiding your crevasse in fear of getting stuck. I'm edging around your lifestyle without a belay. I'm looking up your headwall, the climb is full of scree. For now all I can do is traverse your walls, hoping not to glissade. I don't want to fail you baby but your weather’s rough. I'm climbing but I feel as though I'm stuck. I just want to please you, hope I’ve got enough, love.
