CAREFUL.NOW

Be gentle with me — careful now. My mind is fragile; I’m weak, somehow.

I’m not myself

Whatever that means

I slur my words

Be gentle with me.

Your careless ways

Stutter my speech

Careful, now

Be gentle with me.

Alone, again

As night falls fast

How long will this

Cold deathwish last?

I’m shaking here

Frost nipping toes

You warm me up —

Places no one goes.

So shut the door

Swing the blinds

Be gentle with me

And my fragile mind.
