coming up

take care of what keeps you running
have and take
those extra five minutes
still not content
when the sun rises
for what presumably
is inevitable
to an extent
incomprehensible
come sit with me
come smile and
come and take a sip
lights giving you
nothing but direction
you know the words
you give more than you take
and you know to speak
whatever truth it is you can
fathom
nothing more is what you expect
loving whatever this is
giving you
giving yourself time
living up to expectations
as a form of reaching goals
you want to use big words
to counteract
how small you feel
it’s o.k.
let’s make this a big thing
before it blows up
on its own
self-control.
