Thanks for stopping by xx
I wonder who you are
why you come here
to share your soul and
spill your thoughts
into all these little boxes.
We are both so alike
yet with disparate lives
miles apart only
through cabled wires.
I read your bio
what you choose to tell me
and make up the rest
fill in the blanks
pretend we’re old friends.
Where are you in this world?
I want to imagine your view
see what only you can see
when you write your words
on your laptop or phone.
Won’t you invite me there?
take me by the hand and show me
all that means so much to you
let me understand the why of your mind
and share some precious time.
One lifetime seems not enough
to put these words into all their many
to make sense of the turmoil in our heads
and make peace with one another.
We should meet up and say hello you
so nice to meet you and
have a nice day
it’s been fun
I love you.
Maybe then in this time and space
this world would be in better shape
if we all just hugged and said hello
and understood each other’s woes
all hatred laid to waste.
Anyways I’ve rambled on
you must think I’m daft
my head all wrong
it’s just reaching out
find me on
find me on Instagram
