I Am Standing Right Here

SATURDAY~

I am not of the expectations that a few lines of positive thoughts
or perhaps some cute words of motivation lingering days beyond
it having been read, will miraculously make you feel better.

Nor am I under any illusion of somehow getting sunlight into the
rather light starved room that is at times is your mind. I do not write
with callous disregard to the irony that my words may even worsen
your situation, when thinking

“Why can I not be happier, he is always so fucking upbeat”

I write not with the naivety or arrogance that my single pot of water
poured in your desert will suddenly spring roses from the barren soil.
I write knowing that if I do nothing then nothing will be done.
I write knowing that while I may come bearing but one single pot
of water it may be just enough to cool your parched soul if only for a minute.

And in that minute you may open your eyes to see me standing here
and you will know if the darkness should return you are not alone.
