This time next year, you will wonder why you hadn't started today.


Ignorance in a glass;
Drink it down.
Arrogance as the chaser;
Ebullience pulsing through my veins.

Inebriated by thoughts of you
Rays of light flashing.
Cautiously moving forth through the crowd
Making my way towards the only thing I know:
You.

In unison we all continue our modern promenade
And as the stars fade to daylight,
Our hopes and dreams
Our tears and fears
Disappear as the night is swept away.

And by the time we awaken
Living dusk until dawn
The night has come again.

Waiting.

Moving forth in our modern promenade
Once again inebriated by my thoughts.
And in interim seclusion
Once again,

I stand.


The author's comments:
I really hope people who have dealt with any type of separation from a person, or something very important to them, can take something from reading this. I wrote this poem after feeling numb to life for way too long. Then one day, I just kind of woke up. This is the result and outlook on life for me over the last 3 years, from beginning to end. Here today, I stand.
