all the time

send myself a declaration
of independence
and of importance and purpose
send myself an identity
claiming passion
and overcoming sorrow
I don’t want to lose anything else
or feel too much
or let my chest collapse inward
and scratch my heart
and wring my mind
full of questions and sadness and you
all the time
