The Sheen

A break can cause denial

3 days go by and light begins to burn,

The weight of stress, no match.

And I escape into time.

I remember myself, my purpose.

Ready to fight again; I can do anything,

I will be a master of my future.

And I know exactly how to do it.

At least for the first two weeks of the semester.

The sheen has died,

But, I can thrive in scuff marks
