i’ve only got so much to give

look, i’m real sorry

i can’t hear you over the roar

of my anxieties.

it’s awful crowded here in my head these days

and your voice didn’t quite make the cut

when it came time for the attention triage.

too bad,

i thought i heard you say something about

peace and quiet,

and rest.

sweet rest.

but i’ve only got so much to give

and i’ve already portioned myself out between

all these greedy fears of mine,

so all i have to offer now is that empty space

between tensions,

those slack points of nothingness and exhaustion.

again,

real sorry.

but i’ve got nothing left.
