let me live
in those seconds
between awakening
and awareness

when I don't remember
what I have lost

before the ache begins
and I feel like the target
at the gathering
of archers

before it feels like
all the knife throwers
are practicing
on me

before the storm hits
and I find myself
fighting to breathe

let me live
in that place
between sleep
and awake

tell myself
we are still ours
