The Leaves Really Do Part In Autumn...

February 26, 2021

FREE WRITING

18
whispering secrets as they fall from the tree

what is it, really, the things they say about me?

withering souls, just chaos and fear

when will everything simply...disappear?

why float, when you could sink,

water drenches me but as think

wonders really do come

while you drift off listening to a steady thrum.

the leaves really do part in autumn,

they flee reality.

i wish i could escape like them...

-Thank you for your time-

    This is so good; it really made me smile...also, if you have time, I would love it if you would check out my new song 'the farm' - had to reupload it because people were commenting negative things even though it was about my grandmother who passed away, you will understand when you read it.
