(13) On Days Wishing I was Vulcan (Or at Least 1/2 Like Spock)

Sometimes I wish I were Vulcan
to be able to hold so much in check
to use logic,
not feelings,
to figure out
the next step

Instead I'm full-fledge human
wearing my heart upon my sleeve
tired of crying when I'm angry
tired of wanting what's outside my reach

I am trying to hold
the years together
despite my flawed attempts,
mistakes played on repeat
a Vulcan sensibility 
would save so much biting tongue & cheek
