As You Turn Away

On nights when I can barely keep my eyes closed, my mind just wanders.


Sometimes, I think of you. The hows and the whys.


Then I realise, no matter how much I overthink, there will never be ‘right’ answers.

Just, empty replies.

Your truths. My truths.

All along, I kept asking the wrong question. So.Who are you when we first met?

Who are you now?

A stranger. Fleeting.Strapped with unknown truths.

There. There.

    This is a very sad, raw piece that I think most could relate to and feel. I certainly did. Wonderfully written!

    One day I hope I get to treat you to coffee and you can tell me the stories behind your work.
