Cover Me



Quiet and Solitary
no one knows what I hear
She’s better than a drawing
evolving for everyone
tiny,
she’s everywhere
Waves crash around,
colors don’t register

Taken for granted
though time
through space
maybe photoshopped
decades tell the story
They all heard it

Deny it
but we breathe the same air
Through the stairs
climbing,
thriving

Illusions to stories
repeated,
I’m never bored
cradled by the grass
soft
itchy

Feelings can’t deny
hate it
love it
We’re all the same
