At 5:30am

the mind is a shit storm
a dust bowl, a blizzard

struggling mightily
to be still
I’d love to stay
really, I would

but Pearl wakes
and I abandon
the half-dreams
and speed demons

(her needs trump mine)

time and breathing slow
when she lies
against me
though this doesn’t last

nothing gold can stay…
right, Ponyboy?

    Hey there,

    I’m doing something wrong. I left a long message to you on the Trust post. I left another on Bella’s. Dang. What I wrote was so meaningful and wise :)

    I’ll catch up this weekend.

    xoxo
