I’m here- in this, or so I think

I feel the negative sentiments

Everything falling out of sync

The sun refuses to even rest

Not until I’ve fallen fast asleep

And even then- to many memories

Only to find myself, back awake

Every moment is feeling far too big

All while blue-eyes-blur-blurry-1535935.jpg I- myself becoming smaller

A replay of your words going too fast

Mixed with understanding of too slow

Conflation of a dream and reality both

Living in a rejection of this time warp

No way back, nowhere forward to go

Lost, left, adrift in your departing echoes

I can’t escape; they say, you’ll be back

They tell me what they think I want to hear

All I know, is I never expected to be… here
