ask my mother

if we’re honest,
i do not wish
keep sadness

company. i am
tired looking
squarely at sunlight

patchy against
hardwood making me
wonder days coming.

if grey clouds mean
indecision, they are
swirling round &

round, my eyes well
when i am alone—
they say you love me

regardless depression
i don’t care residing in
side a thorn, god.

For FMF Prompt: Keep. I totally went 30 seconds-a minute over the timer. The beginning was not written with a timer and also during daylight.
