waves.

By Six-Out

the beach.
it doesn't scream
peace-
at me like it used to.

and it's fitting
that the stars stopped falling
from the clouds.
when I decided to
seek them
tonight.

but words.
they taste bitter
so I choose not to speak.

and ink.
it's become tiresome.
so I've grown
bored- with thinking.
and here.
now.

I think
it's time to sleep.

    .....I seriously want to say how this makes me feel but I can’t find the words. Like an old dog coming out of the rain and just finding now solace in the comfort of shelter.

    Even when your writing depicts you are having issues writing...the writing deserves praise. This is a fav...it speaks to me more than just writing...I have days where life itself is like this. My problem is sleep is not my answer...dammit.

    pretty much. I figured it was best to end it with the night. no use going back to what's done.

    Sometimes when your mind goes all blah and the thought cycles don't flow in a way that is conducive to figuring shit out sleep is the best way to recharge. This was serene and sad but enjoyed.
