forgive me

so much went by
since we last spoke
I cannot put a number on it
I barely remember the date still
it would make me (choke)

I get quiet when I am afraid
I cough and I stammer
give me your hand (when you can
afford it)
when needed please share
a screwdriver or hammer

one never knows quite
what a friend will need, might
hand them an apple when they are full up
or a towel when they need a bucket
it’s freeing-surely you see

how we give and we ask, when
we sorely need
I need to be quiet, I need
[a place to hide]
please, if you can bear it
hide me
