Pulled Rugs

An exciting moment presents itself to me,

but I reserve the feelings.

I freeze the moment in time

until I am safe enough to feel happy about it.

Months from now,

I’ll be able to relive this memory

and let

the feeling sink in.

For now, it’ll remain as insignificant

as the lint inside of my pockets,

sheltering the idea of someday

feeling them

in the palm of my hand.
