The five minute walk from the train to my door
at the end of the day
After ascending the stairs
my body gives in to the fatigue
and I collapse in the threshold
of my apartment.
After pulling myself up from the floor,
the kitchen beckons my stomach,
and the two co-conspire to
force me to run past the man
waiting for me in the doorway.
After satisfying my hungry belly,
I choose to comfort my weary body
by laying on the couch
and lose my head to the thought of
When I reach the bed
my only wish is to sleep,
sleep as deeply as possible
as quickly as possible.
And there goes another day
of neglecting the one I love
and forgetting that I ever
had any desires...

Written after a long day, and a long month with hardly any play after hours.
I miss owning my own thoughts…they are now enslaved by law school.
