I keep my dread and dismay in a box. Just in case.

once in a while, 
now and then
you have to stand where you are
and wipe the dust from your eyes
see the nails that have come up through the floor
see the mess you have left in your wake
hear the laughter and music you’ve been shutting out
reach for the strands of silver that float by
instead of digging for gold you see in your dreams
put down your irons,
put away your angst
shelve your dismay and dread….
you will need it later 
the sun is setting,
it will never look like this again 
and you don’t want to miss it

*I don’t want to miss it
