Posted: June 13, 2017 in me

I don’t get fired up about the state of the world

See, what I get fired up about is your mouth

And the words it drips and twists and braids into thoughts

Oh and the way you bite your lip when you’re nervous

Or trying to remember a word
I don’t get fired up about all the death and violence

Because I’m trying to find life inside you

When you’re inside me

And I forgot what rest

And self esteem

And puffy clouds on summer days

Felt and looked like

And the way I close my eyes or look away when I’m experiencing that peace and that “piece”
I don’t get worked up about everything ending

Including me

Because I don’t have the luxury of taking things for granted


I only have memories

And hope

And foolishness

And distraction

And insomnia

And insecurity

And wrinkles

And this empty side of my short sighted bed

See,  I don’t  get fired up

Because the world is already burning

And I’m on fire

I’m on fire

I’m on fire….
