Relentless

Today
has not been 
long 
enough
for all the Saturday
I needed
to heal myself
from Monday through Friday. 

Tomorrow
I know
the pull of Monday
will singe the edges
of my Sunday,
worries licking
around the clock
as it ticks its way
toward bedtime. 

Tonight
I guard 
every moment.

    You’ve captured that feeling of the fleeting weekend of a teacher. “…The pull of Monday will singe the edges of my Sunday” is so well put. I hope you are able to guard the precious last minutes of your Saturday!
