may sixth

A Poem by Nosce Te Ipsum

i've spent many hours in this vicinity

here i was lonely

here i grew up

here i learned nothing

and something all at once

here i was terrified

here i was annoyed

i walked and searched

and wasted time

but it's okay

because they tell me

it's all for a purpose

months passed

and i grew stronger

half of me left

when the other half couldn't

but it was enough

until now it was enough

now i sit here

on an inviting bench


and mourning

and rejoicing

brick and ivy are around me

and covering me

possibly a prediction of the future?

my back is to my past hopes

though they are still

in my possibilities

i want to dance through the water

as my careless goodbye

Honestly, I simply write for myself. I'm not big on the technicalities. I do it to keep myself sane because generally there is no other way to release my emotions. I will be thrilled and overjoyed if .. more..
