under the guise of night

even in late spring

when the light of day shines

so damn long

i must remain

strong

and take care

in them that i reach out to

cos some are not sane

nor even sober

and the pain

of being rejected

even here

cuts

deep

into my energy

and my ego

so self

give it time

to sink in

to win time

and tides

and the attention

of a stranger

without

worrying

or carrying

on too much

about the dangers

of just

taking up the same

spaces

at the same time

for giggles
