Poem Today.

*intro Music*

The Sun Indeed

 

Wait.

The coming and leaving of the days

will pass, 

and the sun—

the sun, indeed

—has not traced its finger on my neck in

so long

and I have not scared in golden

from it

either. 

 

wait. 

The window doesn’t care that I don’t

want anyone to see this

and yet

it allows me to cover it in curtaints

shielding myself

from burns.

 

Wait.

I cannot promise you that I won’t find

another—

in fact,

such a promise seems impossibly mean

—but I do promise as long as

the sun does not grace me

I will stay beautiful 

for you

alone.
