Through The Glass Darkly

This poem is not about you
This poem is about running on the beach
Splashing in the surf, and kicking up sand
The wind is blowing and it is just about to rain
Laughing and breathing harder then it ever thought it could
This poem is not about you
This poem is about smiling for no reason
This poem is singing at the top its lungs
This poem does not care about rejection
This poem threw out all its regrets like an abandoned toothbrush
This poem is not about who was right and who was wrong
Because
This poem is not about you
This poem is running into the future, arms pumping, lungs exploding
Mind blowing euphoria
This poem has it’s head is in the clouds
This poem is throwing shells as far into the sea as it can
This poem is watching the sun set and the surf roll in
This poem doesn’t care if you please read and tell it what you think
Because
What the fuck do you know about poetry anyway?
This poem is not about you
This poem is not about loss and failure
This poem is not stopping at set backs and closed doors
This poem is not waiting for a text
This poem cut all its hair off and doesn’t care if anyone likes it
This poem does not even want to rhyme
This poem is watching the stars come out like spinning and swirling diamonds
This poem is letting the past melt away
This poems cup is running over with joy beyond understanding
This poem is about that high you feel when time stops and you stop trying to get ahead
So
you won’t get it
Because
This poem is not about you
This poem is not running away This poem is running into the future
Not looking back
No regrets
And
No hoped for, never made promises
Because
This poem is not about you
This poem is not about fear and self loathing
This poem is not asking your permission
This poem is doesn’t care about your opinion
This poem is sticking its head out the window on the way home
This poem refuses to be silent
This poem is getting carried away
This poem is howling at the moon
This poem is not about you
This poem is not about you
This poem is not about you
This poem is not about you
