late nights and
I am finishing up final projects
for this semester’s classes
the need to be alone
desperately to be alone
hearing the floorboards creak
dropping things
and not have to answer why
the years of taking care of my father
have left me
wanting or needing to hear silence
I need to become reacquainted
with just me
