Upon Impact/When Waking

Immediately upon impact
It is vital that I write down all the details
I forget otherwise what I even exist for
It’s as if my life only exists in the pages of scribbled notebooks
Jotted down in hurries as if trying to preserve a memory
that would otherwise be lost.
So when that moment comes each morning
And the sun tempts me to pause
Or her smile shifts my waking into concrete stone
I am floating, slowing down time
Asking myself to be diligent in keeping my existence
Close enough to my heart to remember.
That is how I learned, that upon impact
It is of utmost importance
That I write down all the details.
