AprilPoWriMo 24

Running out of time 
before getting to know you
not sure what to do

build some furniture
maybe while wondering who
you will be with us

how eager you are
to take a first breath out here
and make us breathless

questioning no doubt
who we thought we were without
your breathing with us

turning inside out
what we thought we were about
