I am in a constant state of stress.
Of egress and regress
and I never know what
phase the moon is in
or the mood of the
woman who shares my bed.

I'm selfish and unfortunately
prejudiced against this
world that tells me
I must pay for everything
I gain and let
time slip through my fingers
because this loan is out of grace.

Down the Stairs- Anastasia

The most painful thing
I've heard in a long time
is the downward trek
of a person falling
who still isn't ready.
