How Far We've Come

bittersweet memories touch on your heart
sending palpitations of joy surging up and down your whole body
scolding yourself for all the stupid mistakes you've made
can't believe i did that
delete delete delete
but i don't want to delete
i want to hang on to every last drop of adrenaline that might escape from my heart
before sinking into deep sleep
look how far we've come
look how far we have to go
i want to keep my stupid mistakes locked up inside me shut
i want to hold every single miniscule bit of happiness
close to me
swallow the key
so that it stays with me



  1. Why are you so good at poetry and writing?

    1. I don't think I'm very good at it, but it certainly makes me happy and words seem to come easily to me. :)

  2. Love it :) you consistently use such great imagery!
