Flight

We’re smaller than ants
in the grand scheme of things
and yet.
here we are, pretending we
have forever to enjoy another sunset,
still wishing for the days we had
when there’s still so much ahead.

When the future comes knocking, answer it.

There’s nothing left in the past
for you to keep now.

Let it go.

Trust that love will come again
just like it did then.

golden, darling

I keep searching

for what you gave

and I never wanted

not back then

I keep waiting

for this feeling to flee from me

set me free

maybe one of these days

just not today

I keep longing

for a face I know

a heart to call home

a hand to hold

a soul in a mate who will understand

all the other parts of me

I keep hidden away

until I learn

just who I can trust

with this golden heart

here in my chest.
