I am not sad

Nor am I depressed

I am not angry

But I am

A total mess

I am not here

Nor am I there

I am just lost


Some[ ]where

I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

The wind stirs
jerking the trees
Shaking away
all the pain
- I mean, rain
from my leaves

You ever bite your tongue,
to not hurt someone with the truth?

You bite down even harder,
knowing it's only hurting you.

The taste of pennies
in her mouth
As she continues
to bite

Her lips
Her cheeks
and her

Holding back
So others

All the while

The stoplight turns green
though, I don't move
by a falling feather
gently floating by
    And just as it meets the ground
      like ******* snapped in my  
   Robotically, my toe pushes the gas
   and I am back,
   back to simply passing by
I haven't written in a while, and this happened to me today and right after I recited this to myself in my head and had to write it down.

When hopes and dreams
Are soon to come
I rise to face
The morning sun
Just when you think you will soon fall asleep, the sun decides to come out.

All that beauty
Beaming in perfect light
Cascading shadows of mystery
But nobody sees
The beauty in the mystery
Of the eyes behind the lens

I miss those long talks
       filled with random thoughts

I miss the mystery
      in connecting your dots

A droplet of water
Peers over the edge
Slowly inching towards death

Not resisting
To fall into a mess

Gone missing
Yet followed
By all of the rest
