Seventeen

i am only seventeen:

five yesterday

 twenty-three 

tomorrow

seventeen today 

fueled by childish dreams 

knew more as a baby:

more sure of my place in my mother’s arms

than i ever will be 

again

time escapes me 

laughing

four years old

i stand at the edge 

of the Eend

of the world

with all the people i have ever loved 

behind me

and i will never sleep in

my own bed again
