February 3rd

I feel tired
after a long work week,
but I am not
the only one.

I see the boy
inside a young man.
Still trying to sleep
on a sofa too small.

I often sense the two,
(boy and man)
in
conflict.

I taste sweet memories,
which I will carry
throughout
the rest of my life.

I hear,
“He will be gone soon.
Enjoy,
while you still can.”
