Looking in
unaware I am there
wanting to be where you are
never enough
can’t live without
can’t live within
reaching for what once was
fingertips brushing air
forever out of reach

It is What it is -Freewrite Prompt 39

I shake my head in wonder.
The night is still so young
yet I am tired to the bone
because of what was done.
I look to the sky for inspiration
the falling sun giving none.
Why do I question
what I know has no reason?
It has happened before,
it will happen again,
and here I am
waiting for the end.
Taking a deep breath
I give in to the fact,
it is what it is
and I cannot change that.
