Waving at Myself as I Float By


If I can tell myself that I am
Just good enough for passing,

Then each sunrise won’t grate
Like a challenge given.

Each afternoon won’t numb like
Vaulting through apathetic miasma.

Each sunset won’t philander like
The longest leg of any journey.

Each midnight won’t deteriorate into
A battle for every breath.


I could sleep with my eyes closed
And my heart open.

And wake with the whisper of crystalline waters
Carrying me towards a shimmer dusted shore.
