Tired From Just Knowing Her

Fabulous Poetry by Genevieve

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 7:26pm

Tree branches swaying slightly
Leaves whispering to one another
Cornfield already asleep
Clouds have painted the sky a deep blue
Grass admiring the masterpiece
Nature made
Everything ignoring the headlights
From cars slicing through the
Kind evening
Everything ushering everything else
To fall asleep

Life
It passes quickly
But you experience every minute of it
Opposite of space
In space you feel slow
There is no movement
That you can feel
Strange
Different
But true
Life
The longest thing possible
Absorb it

Dark
Empty
Nothing
But it is there
You see it
Wispy but clear
It is there
It guides you
It will lead you
To those bright dots
It already led you this far
Keep going
It says
Persevere

Warm
Flames high
Burning
Orange
Red
Light flashes in your eyes
Owls laughing
Bats circling above
Clear your mind
It is nothing
Empty
But it still leaps in front of
Your eyes to wake you
But you smile
Because it is still nothing
