All The Time in The World

I am tired. 

If I have to come up with one more answer, I might never speak again.

If only I could relax,

taste the salt of the sea and the warmth of the sun against my neck

contrasting the sharp grey corners of the desk I occupy.

If only I could lie down and never get up

my heartbeat one with Mother Earth's 

I would have all the time in the world to think

yet I would think about nothing.

I would be lazy as the lapping waves.

I would enjoy it enormously

if only, if only.

Posted in response to the challenge Lazy.

    You laugh

    It’s a little thing, but you made that smile for me 

    and for now I am glad

    to sit here and endure this boredom

    Because you’re here too

    and I’ve never felt anything like this before

  • The Blizzard

    I hardly knew her at all, wasn’t expected to. She was just a kid at the High like anyone else, who had no car. She was sitting stubbornly on a bench, determined to get a ride.
