avoid.

spend so much time trying to fix the problem,
arrive at the solution,
change,
rearrange,
figure it out

that i’ve missed the point completely
i’m listening,
but i’m not hearing her,
hearing me

i fail to see what’s really there,
too busy looking ahead,
to when it’s all better,
to when it’s different,
to when these feelings…
these feelings i haven’t even truly named yet…
i just keep looking to have these feelings erased.

careful there-
because before you know it,
everything’s erased
i’ve given them all up
to the one who lays waiting,
waiting for me to skip ahead just far enough
that i’m out of my own reach
