A Lost Poem

Why was I afraid of you, my love
you don’t bite…I know that
but everyone was playing outside and I didn’t wanna get left behind

You still stuck around
even when I ignored you,
or couldn’t see you

My eyes were muddied over with stars and ideas
glazed over with ideas of time

Kneeling on the floor, crying about the wind
you stood there
watching me drink to numb the pain away
you allowed

then you watched me as I stood up, dried my eyes, and foolishly tried and tried again.
