Suitcase

I don’t remember how I like to sleep
The inside of a kitchen drawer
Or a suitcase-less floor

I know the elevator buttons here
React a bit too slowly
I know he’s letting go of me –
I don’t remember when it started, but I can feel it growing
I remember knowing
That this couldn’t last forever
I remember feeling better, I remember we were changing
I don’t remember breaking though I think we tried to fix it

When will he get angry that
My nerves are getting jumpy
I don’t remember feeling calmer though someone said I could be
I remember knowing they’ll choose what they want to see in me
I don’t remember losing the chance to take the stand
But there’s a suitcase in my hand
And somewhere else I need to be.

Unstable

Where do we stand
Kitchen counter crumbs stick to
Hands glued to surface
I can’t let go too quickly
I am feeling quite unstable
You are sitting at the table
We once bought together 
With the leg that still needs fixing
It is feeling quite unstable
I can barely stand this silence
When did our love grow so quiet
So unstable, so unsure
I wish you’d feel a little more
Frightened by love’s flightiness
Tell me, will you fight for this?
