I Have To Show Up

The blankets call

In fuzzy warmth

Beconing to sleep til…

It does not matter anymore.

Until the pain is but a whisper.

The world is not so harsh.

Until the dreams and aspirations

Are no longer crushed

Without a spark.

Yet you won’t let me.

No. Not once. Not ever.

Whispering and nudging.

Screaming if you must.

No you will not let me.

Just this once…

Not show up.
