something nags
it’s almost indescribable
i love it
not that it’s necessarily positive
but that it’s an opportunity
an opportunity to write
to try

a metaphor for life
that’s all we can do
              try
each moment an experiment
an attempt to make sense
of something so strikingly complex
we stretch and claw for words

my body aches for rest
i come and go
but no!
      i will fight for seconds
both on a clock and “again”
      for this could be it
and lost i cannot let be
