Joan Winifred

2:22a.m.
Woke up
Been up trying to settle my mind to sleep
And my upset tummy
And my sneezy nose
And scratchy throat

Nah, I’m not really sick
Mild symptoms of

A heart trying not to break
And a mind trying not to split

YAWN

cough, cough

why

why did you have to chose what you did?

and I am too far away to approach

and too incompetent to know

exactly how to help

I know a little

i know

your pain is a lot

to handle all on your own

but what am I suppose to do for you???

you cannot tell me and you won’t

so

i’ll cough for you

and sneeze for you

and lose sleep for you

and cry for you

And write stupid stuff (for you)

(that you’ll never read?)

Yeah, woe is me and woe is you 2

Not my choices but your choices

render me

semi

powerless

To intervene

temporary and fleeting (all of it)

a cough

a sniffle

a tear

Your righteousness will not be forgotten

that is the consolation I find (and hope for me/You)

And from wise words:

Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day will bring.
2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth;
Others, and not your own lips.
3 A stone is heavy and sand is weighty,
But the irritation caused by a fool is heavier than both.
4 There is the cruelty of rage and the flood of anger,
But who can withstand jealousy?
5 Open reproof is better than concealed love.

6 The wounds inflicted by a friend are faithful, But an enemy’s kisses are plentiful.
7 One whose appetite is satisfied turns down honey from the comb,
But to the hungry, even what is bitter tastes sweet.
8 Like a bird that strays from its nest
Is a man who strays from his home.
9 Oil and incense make the heart rejoice;
So does sweet friendship springing from sincere counsel.

10 Do not forsake your friend or your father’s friend,
And do not enter your own brother’s house on the day of your disaster;
Better is a neighbor nearby than a brother far away. (Proverbs 27:1-10)

(No title, no label, no judgment call by me)
