I'm experiencing one of those rare times when I'm on a writing streak, so bare with me, I'll try not to over-post. Here's my favorite from this streak so far:
-------

You Are Here

You are here
listening to the sound of the train
as it disappears
a metaphor for your love in vain
you have no idea where you're going
whether east or west
the only sound is the wind blowing
and it sounds like loneliness

She is there
never spending a thought on you
she's unaware
and she's moving on without you
and the time ticks by unaffected
by your best laid plans
and every hope you've collected
slip through your fingers like sand

Here at the end of this
you search for traces of every kiss
and everything you'll ever miss
about her
here you contemplate surrender
you tell yourself you won't ever
forget her

You are here
listening to the sound of the rain
thinking on all the years
without her




"Whatever makes you weird is probably your greatest asset"-Joss Whedon

Your word choices are pure perfection...and wearing your heart on your sleeve never looked so good.
