I Save Moments


For the sake of you, my dear
I sustain an appearance of normality
So that you need not live in fear
I might lapse into brief insanity
I save those moments

For the sake of you, my love
I adhere to a role of expectancy
Slipping my fingers into a glove
Deigned for staid normality
But I save moments

For the sake of you, darling
I smile with my mouth and say ‘hello’
‘How are you?’ and ‘pardon’
I seem quite normal, you know
But for those saved moments

For the sake of you, oh precious
I keep them held within
Yet, I remain skeptically cautious
While wearing a poet’s skin
Full of saved moments
