May I sit?

May I come alongside you
And just sit a spell?
My feet are tired
From running
My legs are weary
From traveling
My arms are aching
From holding on
My mind is letting go
Untethering
My eyes are opening
And the view is dazzling,
but blurry
And I don’t want to trip
So may I sit?
May I be quiet?
Until the tears,
Drowning my voice
Choking out all sound
From the inside out,
Rush to the river
Undammed
Until then
May I sit?

May I sit - poetry by Roshan Grossman
