How has the sun not burned out?
How is this planet still in orbit?
How are the stars still in the sky?
I don’t understand it.
If nothing is right in my mind,
How is the universe still in line?
The scratching of bird’s claws, pattering among the branches of the overgrown rose bush, disturb the limbs, causing several aged leaves to fall to the ground. Braver birds prance on the loose soil of the vegetable garden. The bees buzz on from blossom to blossom, oblivious to all but the pollen. Crisp leaves sway in the breeze, flowers glow under the retiring sun. The sounds of innocence drift over fences and boundaries as a child laughs and squeals in delight. A large commercial plane growls overhead and far-off rush hour traffic pollutes the music. The outline of roof tops form jagged shadows on the grass.

If you were the past
and I am the present
What is the future?
#my writing #short and shitty #yolo
Indifference is my sin, and I cannot dream
I’m locked in my chest, my mind, my body
I am strained by such emotional monotony
I need a spark to burn away this apathy
Full to the brim with feeling empty
The future is an abyss and I am falling
Oblivion is home to my memories
Numbness is a drug, ever so addicting
A hollow heart that lost sensitivity
When I do think, I’m dissatisfied. Frustrated. Angry
I will break the shackles of self-deceit
I will pull out the needle anesthetizing me
When I let myself feel, I will be free.

I’ve been a fake,
I’ve been a liar,
I’ve contorted my mouth,
but I haven’t smiled.
I’ve acquired the courage,
the strength to turn the page.
A chapter concludes,
the next takes shape.
I continue to write my story,
a blank sheet and memories.
White paper and a sunrise,
new words and an opportunity.

For a moment to admire those eyes,
I’d crawl the continents on my knees.
For a moment to see that smile,
I’d sail in solitude across the seas.
For a moment to simply be with you,
I can’t think of a thing I wouldn’t do.

Six thousand miles in between,
Separating you from me.
You don’t feel it, but I do-
I’m not being taken from you.
On that plane, the distance grows;
The pain is there, but it won’t show,
‘Cause deep inside, I have hope.
I trust in seeing you again,
Faith that this is not the end.
One day I will cross the vast sea
And we’ll meet for lunch in Germany.
