about that day...
What if on that day I'm always talking about
the world didn't fall into place
but rather shift?
What if what was meant to be was simply
a part of a bigger picture
that I get to paint?
What if I've been a mess not because I can't deal with things
but rather things are just a little off axis
like when you move your couch two centimeters to the left
and it looks the same
but you keep sitting down too far to one side.
And what if things are starting to shift back now
and I'm not sure if I want them to?
Will I feel the fall as hard as I felt the shift?
