Break

What i most
Need a break from
Is not the unceasing rain
Nor the unyielding demands.

What I most
Need a break from
Is not the constant uncertainty
Nor the competing workloads.

What I need
Is the chance to
Set aside my buffet of masks
And spend the week as myself.

So
Spare me the sun
The empty calendar pages
The quiet inbox

And
Grant me
A week to feel seen
And heard
And loved.

One thought on “Break

  1. I love this. “Set aside my buffet of masks and spend the week as myself”. Holy genius batman! I kept thinking that same thing when I was on break – mrs butler needs a rest so Brittany and Mommy can catch up on living. So smart. You are such a thought-provoker in your writing. I’m so glad to have sliced with you:). Enjoy your break.
