all i can think is campfires
and the moon, you know?
all i can think is the moon
the moon and the wind like fingers in the trees

all i can think is i ran away this one time,
all alone on the beach with the crabs and the broken zipper
and the strange boy who lives in my head sometimes
and the acoustic guitar
and the wind in the trees like fingers

and

god,
all i can think is i'm alone
and i'm alone like white light on rocks
and i'm alone like damp in lunar dust
in far-off craters

and all i can think is,
god,
i'm something like a story for girls in scarves.
had a moment

i don't know

i haven't done most of those things
a grain of truth?

Original images and metaphors which make sense and a beautiful narrative make this poem outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of poems about loneliness but this one really struck it with me. Well done ;)

Lovely vivid images and the melancholiness which I love in poetry.
Well done. :+fav:
