Sinking In

Sarah Peabody

sometimes I forget who I am
and this. it. just sinks in.
hopeful regret
taking over
morphing me
and it hurts. hurts
and why can't i see?
everything i want is
only. a. heartbeat. away.
but when i reach
can't quite
and i feel that.
know it's not
a good thing.
trying to believe
in something. anything.
and i can hope
but it falls flat
unless the day
is slowly sinking. dying.
and evening is coming on.
shading. protecting.
and then i long for the day.
ache. breathe. wait for daylight.
