What We’re In The Middle Of

5 Mar

sometimes we miss things the most

when we’re right in the middle of them

we could be swimming in the most beautiful waters

and we can’t see the size of the ocean

only that we’re paddling for dear life

it’s no secret why we’re sinking

we want so desperately to enjoy the moment

we forget to breathe

we feel like we’re not really living

unless there’s a record of it

broadcasted for other humans

to enter into

because our experiences mean nothing

if they’re not shared

even as we drown

in a tsunami of opinion

pulling down what we love with us

let us be wrong

let us be ridiculed

let us be hated

but please, don’t let us be alone

an endless black sea all around

with the universe coming out our fingertips

the blinding light reflects on water

back into our tired eyes

let us float on our backs

until the edge of the world

let our arms and legs give way

but please, don’t let us forget to live
