As the stars align

and the moonlight shines

in the back of my mind

making space for time

and time is all I need

for me to finally breathe

there’s not enough air, it seems

there’s not enough salt in the sea

yet the salt will soon overthrow

all the water and sand, like snow

on a forest somewhere I will grow

if only warmth follows, in tow

a warmth I can’t seem to shake

like the white of a snowflake

or the pinch of salt inside a cake

there’s only time for dawn to break


So into my chair… … … I sank

I just need a moment.. … … to think

Instead, I stand. … … and blink.
