I carry around chalk when we hang out
to draw the line
I can't easily see.

The line between
what is
what's not

the line that makes an Almost

not Yes.

But each day the line is erased!

So I work on drawing a THICKER line,

one that will remain!

Even still, the next day,
all traces have strayed!

I bring in hand
a permanent marker.

that FOREVER stains.

but by the next day,
we're in a different place!

The line lies miles away!

I still have the marker,
only now I'm drawing pretty pictures,
and soon forget
that what I see
is what I made!

a HARSH reminder.

This line falls
so hard
