ghostly heart

r1 r2 r3 r4 r5 r6"I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life."

Clean shirts and fresh daisies. Cars and cigarettes. I talk loud about God. The sun also rises for those who romanticize life. Those who are willing to walk into the wilderness with no end goal in mind. Young and pretty. Parliaments on fire and moving to the music. Speeding into the horizon, headfirst into the cooling twilight, I am alive, if nothing else. And the end of summer comes rushing in to steal my hope, and I realize I still have no idea what I want.
