mistakes.

Text:

Everything is changing, she said.

Do you see

how with each mistake

she is becoming.

Is it worth

waking up in the morning

to see what might happen?

My anger is sharp

and angular

like the edges of your body.

I find myself

overcome with jealousy.

The golden tea

and soft breathing of a

snoring dog

fade the envy green

to the comforting gray of overcast skies

and soft blue of

the lonely sea.

The rounded edges

of my insecurities

melt into the down of my pillow

as the dawn creeps in quietly.

It is worth

waking up in the morning

to see what might happen.
