When did that happen-
sleeping at the wheel knocked over a cone a puppy a baby
and I never noticed.
Free of toxins, full night of sleep, and hands on the wheel
and I lost it- out of my hands, out of my ear
when I was dreaming
dreaming about you and I knew
losing seconds in that dream would take hours
and I slept to long.
Bring me out don’t hold me down
sinking in worth please don’t let me drown
am I worth it bleeding it out till the plague is gone
spawn all the worries and blessings lined up to take their shot-
is. my. time. up.
woken up- alone
call ended fourteen hours ago just seconds ago not the time to lie low
so; don’t drop the call, answer and hold a thought longer than
you’re the most beautiful person I’ve ever met
into the side of the road before the cement block can remove my head
like a jack o’ lantern on Halloween eve I’ll dial your number
it’ll ring- the mirror broken off laying next to me
I can’t say hello, like I normally do
I’m sorry I am going to be late for dinner,
traffic is a mess.
