[ARTICLE] FLIGHT

So this what love feels like
Letting someone or people
Get in your own space
Registering their being in your head
Letting them be a part of your routine
Letting their joy and pains affect you
Or better still knowing a part of you is gone because they ain’t there no more.

Because do you know?
Even in our six weeks
Minus a day journey
I totally skipped that one day
You’ll move on
& I’ll walk into an empty room
Tomorrow came already
And I stroll in
quietly into an empty room
Now its an empty world

From me to you on my high chair of greens.
