Standing Still

Reading: The House of Leaves….still

Listening: the complete Kill Hannah library on shuffle and repeat

Prompt: No prompt for today.  Just writing.  Actually creating something for the first time this blog….which is good, I guess, since that was the idea behind it in the first place.

Weddings and babies,
Careers, degrees, opportunities.
Teachers, photographers,
Writers, the like.
Sitting,
Watching,
Waiting,
Time passes by.
Each new day
Another day older.
Another day farther away from current.
Stagnant.
Stationary.
Frustrated.
Wheels spinning.
Gears grinding.
No relief in sight.
Heartsick.
Wanting more.
Not knowing what.
More.
Less.
Different.
Other.
Or just a change of scenery.
Day turns into night.
Online, chat with friends.
Pretend to be anywhere else.

Just not here anymore.
Stand still.
Watch it all spiral past.
Sleep.
Dream.
Wake to find another day.
