Almosts and Might Have Beens

My best friend
told me last night
that I have more
rules for myself
than anyone
he’s ever known
and I’m pretty sure
he didn’t mean it
as a compliment
but I can’t
put into words
how important it is
to maintain these walls,
these restrictions,
these guidelines for
making it through
another day in a world
that is working at all times
to push my life in on itself
in a steaming heap
of almost did’s and
might have been’s.
