Mar 2021
You are living
In the past
Thinking you could
Still outlast
Some vague timeline
In you head
Some fake past
You think you read

You project
Your memories
And imagine
They’re the keys
To good feelings
But alas
All good moments
Seem to pass

Far too quickly
And you find
That nostalgia
In your mind
Is a poison,
Keeping you
From the things
You ought to do

Like moving forward
With your quest:
To bleed-out love
From your chest!
And make a difference
Here somehow.
Loving living
In the now
