When I try to close my eyes tonight
My face starts its swiveling
Or is it my body winding up
Dark red and wavering
Pulses in the liquid air around me
A human shifting form
From what into what and when
I cannot will not do not know
I have been distracted
So she has patiently lain in wait
For metamorphosis or progress
But now she turns to leave
Bored of me

I have heard it said
That once you think about making a decision
The decision has already been made
There is only the catching up
Of story to reality

Somebody please tell her to wait
I have decided
I am finally catching up
To me
