I Have Wasted My Life

Look at the glistening of the dew on the grass,

it winks at me,

and I wink back.

Time flows steadily,

as sand would bleed through the edges of an hourglass.

A reptile climbs onto the tree I lay beside,

peering at me through green kaleidoscope eyes,

and flicking its tongue out as if to taste my loneliness.

I look at the sky.

Clouds pass overhead,

paying no mind to what I have now become.

I come to the realization that—
i have wasted my life.
