What Now

It feels like it’s over
it has felt this way for awhile
as if the letters between A and Z
are tired of being called upon
to sit next to each other
in a book that no longer wishes to open
but refuses to close
and that is the scariest part of this story
how it continues without a plot
even after the final word meets its period
so on behalf of the curious and the empty
I must know if this is it
is this all my eyes were meant to see
just tell me
whisper it in my ear as I sleep
write it in the stars across the sky
spell it out in my morning cereal
just tell me
what now
what am I supposed to do now
because it feels like it’s over
and it has felt this way for awhile.


About Paul

This is the part where I'm supposed to write something interesting about myself and you'll read it and think, "That's not that interesting." So let's not do that and just think about pizza instead, on the count of three. One, two, three. Donuts. Now, wasn't that interesting?

  1. I had to read it so fast because I couldn’t hold my breath for so long! Love the no punctuation. A breath of fresh air!

    Gosh, I wish I could still write poetry (I haven’t had inspiration strike in a while). This is amazing!

    This is so beautiful. Yearning, frightened, trusting, with faith…Powerful.

    How did you get it to look like it’s snowing on your homepage? I’m a little afraid to ask, in case you don’t know what I’m talking about, lol.

    Got it. Under settings is a holiday snow button thingy. On until January 4th. I have to see how it looks against my sunset.
