Caring and All

I care about what you think of me

Of course, I don’t want to care

I want to write without a worry

Without the need for awards

Or fancy publications

I don’t care what strangers think of me

Or acquaintances

But you and I are close so I can’t help but care

It’s uncomfortable how my writing depends on your support

But whatever keeps these words comin

Whether it be love whether it be truth

I’ll keep showing up

Caring and all

Heartbeats

From moment to moment

There’s these spaces in between

They are the heartbeats

The lifeline leading

From moment to moment

The repetitive beats are often disregarded

left to be automatic

But it’s not that moment you’ve been waiting for that’s so amazing

It’s all the beats that come together over time to make these moments breathtaking

Is It?

What did you sign up for?

Did you get it?

Did you get the thing you signed up for?

Does anyone get the thing they sign up for?

 

We see

We watch on in excitement

waiting for our turn

waiting to have a place

a wife a husband

waiting for the acceptance letter

the membership

the friendship

is it better than you dreamed?

is it anything you could have ever imagined?

Is it what you signed up for?

A Writer’s Wish

The steam around me is hardly noticed

my feelings

cooped in the shed

that came with our backyard

I take breaths

I feel the shower and take in that very moment

it feels so good to breathe

without a worry

My head rests against the wall

and I think of how hard it is to think

how hard it is to not be automatic

 

I swallow basic thoughts

crunch on mere survival

The fog fills the bathroom

and blurs the mirror

I cannot see me

but I can see the fog

 

❤ Saschia
