an event.
"that went well" i think
an embarrassing line here or there
but overall its pretty clear
i didnt do bad
no need to despair.

.
24 hours
is all that it takes
for thoughts to wind themselves as snakes
spiraling

a fool.
annoying, stupid
ugly, unwanted, bore
whirlwind mind I can't ignore

examine each blurred sentence
each offstep
every forgotten word
or errant laugh

maybe ill hide
face unseen
its quite obvious
I wasn't wanted here
must be pity
obligation
regret for each there.
.

24 hours
thats all it takes
to go from content
to this inner torment

how, I ask
do I care so deeply
so intensely
and yet, am incapable
of the simple act
we call

falling in love.
A bit from a larger poem. I can't seem to work the poem out to a place I'm satisfied. But I kind of like this bit by itself? At least for now
