Just be

Processed with VSCOcam with c8 preset

Like the trusses of a bridge
creaking under the strain
of each lonely passing train
I’ve grown weary of trying
so succinctly to be just me
that I forgot how to just be
and breathe free like the sea
questioning the sun and all
that its done so magnificently
without the slipping of tears
down its cheek into heavens
awake but pretending to sleep
for fear of the things crying out
louder than all that rise to fall
down deeper to rest once more
on the skin of the farthest shore
where the rivers flow backward
and the swaying trees shout
their regrets in thundering bets
only to fade ever so softly away
in the growing shade of the day
and with it my muster and steam
lost once more in passing dream.
