grief

the world keeps moving


stuck

observing

fixing a smile

pressing out furrows

practicing normal


one day it will return

in fleeting moments, i savor it


so please forgive me


i am in and out of touch

overreactive

non-responsive

erratic in my connections

too foggy

too clear

hiding

sometimes from others

sometimes from myself


i grapple with the missing

something is lost, never to return


there is something within me that strives for ordinary


sometimes i think it's fear

weakness

pride

a wiser me hopes it's honor

strength

love


there is no escaping myself

i do the best i can
