A World Away Means We Are Dust



A world away

means we are dust

Showing a sign

Is a leaf in the crack of the sidewalk


Even if I did say

Something stupid

You know I’m true


Even though

I got mad

You know my heart is real


I’m aware

Of words

That shoot sideways


I’m guilty

Of saying

Things layered in misdirection


Even if

My tongue

Never touches yours ever again


Even if

My hands

Never feel the tautness of your stomach


I am

Your friend

Regardless of my desire


I am

An ear

Listening to your desires




A world away

Means we are dust

    This poem made me sad when I wasn’t sad. It never happened to me before. It’s very strange but it’s also fine.
