Limbo

We left
limbo
in
too
much
of
a
rush.
We
didn’t
let time
dwell,
or
trees
lend their
branches
for
real
wisdom.
We didn’t
give
nature
a
turn
or two
to
figure
shit
out,
and
we
didn’t
give us
the
chance to
be
the
old
us before
we
lost
ourselves
in
the new
us.

We let
limbo
become
too
real,
and
forgot
why

we
started
in
the first
place.

Life Without You

Yesterday,
we
would have
found
time
to
lounge
like
big cats
on
the Serengeti,
or
a
hot DC
day
not too
far
from the beach.

We
would have
found
the
time
to
count
cloud patterns,
and
watch
loose
trees lean
to
and
fro, and
without
much
caution
to
the proverbial
wind.

We would
have
stuck
out
our
feet
into
deep
sand,
and
laughed
at the
very
notion
of our life
lingering
away.
