The Rain In the Walls

Life wasn’t built
around winning. 

life was built

the part where you loose
a few words to the translation,
or miss a step,
lost in the folds of your mind.

and most people
don’t even stop
to notice all the love
we still possess,
almost forgetting where to look.

each other, the stars, the hope
in this place.
There is more
than we let on, 
and yet we don’t.

We are never just nobody,

before the sun

Candles lit,
fires stoked,
and doors locked.

The time before 
the sun

Water hauled,
dishes washed,
and floor swept.

The time before 
the sun
is always full,
almost too
to see the sun 
behind the trees...
but it always happens,
and we’re not
