day before

Today I needed

A hard place to land

I needed concrete

To rise up

Force the stop

Control, Alt, Delete

Today I needed

A place to lay my head

I needed a lap

To curl in

Let it go

Empty recycle bin

Today I needed

A place to absorb the sound

I needed an ear

To feel me

Commiserate

Unmute, max volume

Today I needed

A place to forget

I needed you

To help me

Take it away

Factory reset

Today I needed

A hard place to land.

let it be over

Fear, a sneaky bastard
infiltrating every thought
sapping joy, it shows no mercy
overtaken, ready or not.

Fear, a hellish meal
push that plate away
stomp, scream, shore up your mind
overcome, this cannot stay

Fear, the grandest canyon
peace on the other side
jump on off, open the chute
over it, you’ll meet life
