Atlas

Holding the weight of the sky

And trying to piece a smile

As my knees give away

Counting the wretched seconds

Till the horizon beckons

And I groan

As I fade away.

This Story

tumblr_oovcdyaCVb1v2b1lto1_400.jpgFlipping through the leaves

Of all the times I’d still been here,

And thinking of what went wrong,

but my mind is as blank

As the sky after snow,

Intersected by the dead, cold branches.

And the book snapped shut

I blinked at all it truly was,

And saw that after all,

The story ends with us.
