something greater than yesterday

it's holding on

that feeling you

just happened to find

it's holding on


you weren't looking for it,

maybe you dreamed

of emotions once lived

similar to this nicety

like those built on youths plentiful

junkyard of joy


but the sleight of hand

had it find you



and maybe you’re just

with dragonflies,

maybe no ones around


there's no difference


when it takes

it takes

and takes

and keeps taking

you over and

over and

over again


until you take it and

see its presence whittling

you into something greater than

yesterday
