Sustaining

Gravity holds me down

while my mind flies away.

To a different time and

a whole clean new place.

Try to see these words now

please try to understand

I seek no fame or grandeur

only emotions so I can stand.

The wrenching takes hold

as I grip the bars of reality

could you please promise me

you’ll see I do this to believe.

That the best part of me

that I can contemplate now

are the smiles I can conjure

on my face to figure out how

that I can sustain myself

through this rock here in space.

How I can structure sanity

here in this lonely stale place.
