tuck yourself in
2:46 pm / 23.09.05

these feelings will change
give it time
to seep into you
smile when they smile
laugh when they do
tuck yourself into bed at noon
awake at five
and try too hard to smile

if it comes more easily
you can speak
but now just
sit and enjoy the
numb feeling.

get high on it
get low on it
smoke it inhale it
let it grow

tuck yourself in at 2
awake at 9
get around
and cry.

think of all the things they told you.
think of all the fear
think of tiny cuts on your face
tuck yourself in
and don't get up.
