Poem: Just Pass By Me

I don’t blame you
For your footsteps
Leading away
That’s the direction
The pack goes

There’s always better
Nothing here
Just hands and heart and head
No palace
No substance
Just passion
And bills

Everything
Is remembered
Treasured
Gone
It goes fleeting
Like birds
Or storm clouds
Embraces us in beauty
Of the smallest of things
In the biggest of worlds
To change and end

Is it better
To shut the windows
Watch no storm clouds
Hear no birds flutter
Repel the advances
To not have to remember?
Like it never happened
Temporary
Again

At least
It felt like
Something
