I Need

This is one that I wrote a few years ago- it’s nothing exceptional, but it sets a tone in this early stage of things.

Going back over these older poems is also cathartic. Moving forward and growing and accepting the emotional character that I am… some might call it progress.

I need

Some sleep

And to curl

Up

Naked

Behind my wife

And feel her

And sleep

Peacefully.

That’s all I want

Right now

Because I can’t

Pay my bills

Tonight

Or find a new job

Tonight.

But,

I can

Go home

And hold

My wife

In my arms.
