My jaw clenches

My fingernails

Yearn to scratch

At layers of skin

My joints ache

Rigidity laced

Stand like a statue

Hold still, hold still

Breathe in slow

Hold… maybe

Forever if you can

Fix your stare

On a calmer future

Moments past this

Tick tick tick

Final loud tock


Open your eyes

Look in the mirror

It was just a dream

You’re still here

You’re still here
