It's nicer to think dear, pretty thoughts and keep them in one's heart, like treasures. I don't like to have them laughed at or wondered over.
-L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables)


everyone is having fun on the shore

they seem to crave the warmth of the sun
as they laugh at the birds

those who are brave tread the water’s edge
shiver fast at the cold
beam popsicle smiles and
tip toe through tides

I stride forward
slow
cold creeps onto bare skin
I am still

as I envy the birds
I feel unfit for the heat of the sun

far beyond the shore
awaiting tears
I know I shouldn’t wish to drown but
perhaps to drown is to fly beneath the earth and

it’s fun to wash away

I love it! "Popsicle smiles" "it's fun to wash away" "perhaps to drown is to fly beneath the earth" = favorite lines, although they're al beautiful. A really good illustration of feelings of depression/loneliness/feeling distant
