Gory Fragments #27



I’ll be sitting here
on the park bench
till you’re ready to find me
come hold my hand
don’t feel much like talking
would rather just sit
watch how the wind
sends ripples through the tall grass
admire the way the sunlight
sparkles on the waters
I’d like to forget
all the things going on
all the constant, nagging thoughts
and the dark matter getting thrown
in my face
I think it’s best
to be quiet
sit in awe of nature
even just for awhile
appreciate the beauty
we all take for granted
the silence
the fresh air
I would really like it
if you came over
and you could join me
while I try to think
of nothing
but I understand
if you’d rather not
I won’t be mad
I’ll respect your decision
just thought it’d be nice
to have someone to share
my silence with
