Let Me Be

Published: 13 December 2019


Put out the light and rest,
don't waste your time thinking—
I haven't done anything today
that is out of the ordinary.

I coded. I walked. I drove.
I saw the world with wide open eyes,
the same ones that see you
when they are closed.


Let me be the one who carries
the burden of these dreams.

Let me be the one who stands
under the moon and the stars,
in the dark that lasts but a few hours.

Let me be the one who blows
smoke towards the clouds and
hurts my eyes against the sunrise.
