One more evening

You know


Write
write from where you know
breathe the worlds you see 
longing to be a small
Speck of matter
free
floating
be worlds to see
a kernel, a spark 
blazing so bright
to be
write from where you know 
you see
when you do they
see smell feel
this life crushing me
overwhelming beauty
sleepy comfort
blanket by the fire
warm, free!
for tonight inside
the floor a far cry from
the ground outside
destroying my feet
cant stop walking
from the sure feeling
stop for a moment
I'll stop fleeing
fall asleep,
stop breathing
feet the thin door
that reed well worn
sleeping warm
for tonight
safe floor, firm door
and locks keeping my soul
earth-bound
one more evening

Hey Chris, I hope that writing can help you keep your sanity going through all this. I don't know what to say other than sorry. Sorry.
