If only
Written by Roux

The gentle grass hums
I sit, legs crossed, eyes closed.
Swshhhhh
Swshhhhhh

Yet the clouds are so big,
So surreal
The skies
The skies are painted turquoise.
For once
For once I feel at peace.
Like nothing matters anymore.
Like I can accept this is who I am.
This is who I’ll be.
Nobody’s expectations.
Nobody’s judgment.
Maybe I’m like the bugs.
The ones who bounce about
Without a care in the world.
The ones who don’t feel
Who don’t hurt
Who don’t envy
Who don’t cry
Those bugs.
Swshhhh
Swshhhhh

If only things
Could stay this way.
If only things
Wouldn’t change.
If only things
Didn’t hurt.
If only.


thank you for reading <3

I really like how you made the "swshhhh" sounds for the grass and for the bugs. I also like the descriptions you used at the beginning to describe how the clouds and skies were.

A relaxing warm day, sitting on the grass alone. Just calm around. Nothing else. That's what I feel reading this.
