MONDAY: The Superhero’s Rescue

BY ERICA RICHMOND

Some days
i don’t want to be strong.

Some days
i want to disappear into sadness.

Some days
i want to hide my superhero outfit
against my skin
under layers
of all my clothes and jackets.

Some days
i dream
about you coming to my rescue;
despite the fact
i’d never ask
and despite the fact
you never would.

But still,
it’s a lovely dream.

And then other days
I grow tired of it all
and wake up.
