see: that sick feeling when you've drank too much coffee; 2:25pm

it makes your heart beat a friendly pace;
maybe too friendly for this day.

adrenaline pumping and you don't know why.

because this is when the anxiousness and
bitten fingernails get evaluated,
when you start to question your own sanity,
in the caffeine induced haze.

but the awareness of life, oh how eager to live,
to engage in everything it makes one.

i always wondered how mother could drink so much
of the bitter liquid, but the bite is worth
so much. appreciating the short buzz and shaky limbs.

nothing more can be said.
