I Hate This Bit

I hate this bit
The bit that makes me want to shy away
And hide
To bury my head and scream into my favourite pillow

I know coz I tell myself I’d rather sail
Sunsets, cloudscapes, rivers and and and deep oceans

Instead, the world is saber toothed snared
Teasing my indulgent self to leave ajar the door
Just enough
To abscond from my Responsible
From my greying, retirement village adult

Let us kick you away
Into the blackest parts under the bed
The surface quilted and redecorated for crisp fresh love
Darned large stiching split chin scarred mended needled

I have been waiting

I Hate This Bit
