i am only seventeen:

five yesterday



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 


time escapes me 


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
