I am
Losing ground

I am losing
Against the
Deadlines and
Homework and
Obligations that
Come with living
The life of a
College student

I am losing this
Battle because
You are here,
Stuck in my head,
You've taken
Root in my chest,
And your hold over
My heart and
My head has a
Confounding and
Stupefying influence
On the cobwebs
Of those who came

Where before
Confusion danced,
Ashes rest
And certainty slips
In on a cool sexy
Silky wind
To sweep the dust
Back out again
