Should have stayed

rnr12i78sfo-krista-mangulsone.jpg

I should have stayed in bed today

The morning wrenched

Wrong footing

Left of where I should have been

I should have stayed in bed today

The light was off

A treaded path fracture

A spirit troubled

I should have stayed in bed today

Once warmth of security

Unhelded, left lost

From moment to minute

I should have stayed in bed today

Reclaiming, unattained

A chip in tone

A beaten breath

I should have stayed in bed today

To own my mine-ness

To kiss the right

And pause, before rising

I should have stayed in bed.
