Lexington Poetry Month

Suddenly Summer


I push myself
a furious fever-pitch pace
for days, weeks, months,
losing myself under the veil
of responsibilities,
and then it’s over,
this school year,
and I’m faced with space and light
and open air remembering 
who I am

still staring back,
haunts and guilt,
why I left
the only place
I ever called Home
for here.

    Finding yourself in the culture shock that is summer. Hope you adapt quickly and it treats you kindly!
