Sometimes, Again

Sometimes a man wants to hold
his exhaustion closer to him
than he wants to hold you
but still you think you can win.

Sometimes something starts
and then stops and then starts.

Sometimes you can’t help
but hear yourself making
all of these promises
knowing full well
you should just
shut your mouth
and let it happen.

Sometimes the truth
comes suddenly
and it’s scarier
than any lie
because you’re
not confident
which is which.

Sometimes a man
wants to hold
his exhaustion
closer to him
than he wants
to hold you
and even though
all you want is
to fix it, he falters.

Sometimes you realize
the end may come suddenly
but it has nothing to do with you.

Sometimes you’re alone again
and you’re not sure how it happened
or if you did everything you could.

Sometimes you remember that
being lonely is better than being left.

Sometimes a man wants to hold
his exhaustion closer to him
than he wants to hold you
but still you think you can win.

If you’ve been around long enough this one might seem strangely familiar. What can I say, I really know him to pick ’em. Out of nowhere last night I thought to myself, “someday there’s going to be someone.” Despite all evidence to contrary… someday, there’s going to be someone.
