there are things that inspire me.
odd things
in odd places
they tap a well inside
which I never knew was there
and suddenly
I'm overflowing
but these things are good at hiding
impossible to find
for they never appear
while I am searching.

there are peaceful moments.
and quiet
pieces of time that seem to move much slower
than the rest
these moments are comfy and lovely and
but moments are moments
never meant to last.

there is love.
an intimate moment
two glowing hearts
firey feelings
and quiet laughs
but for me
love was only that
a firey feeling
that eventually
turned only to ash

is so fleeting
too good at hiding
only moments
and love
was just a fire

but they're what makes life
worth it

for they always come
and they're always perfect.
as the sun burns
bright and radiant,
it shines on a world
that keeps turning
under blue skies
that match the
ocean in color.

the wind will push
the swings on an
empty swing set,

the fences will
remain unpainted,

bicycles will
no longer parade
down the streets,

the elbows and
the knees will
remain unscathed

and somehow
they get by
without ever
the answers
that cell phones
can’t provide them
