Metaphor

Folder: 
2020

We are trying to stay the same

as the ground breaks spring

and the world ends.

 

Feels like a metaphor.

 

We are on a cliff and

I am trying to keep you safe

in this fraying net.

 

I should say something about

beginnings and endings

and some things never changing

but that isn’t true, isn’t it?


We are changing

every second.

 

I want to think

we’re different in a good way.

 

We are trying to start again

as everything is unraveling

 

your fingers in mine.

 

Are we scared enough

brave enough

strong enough

enough to hold on?

A very relatable conflict and

A very relatable conflict and some amazing wordplay. I particularly liked "as the ground breaks spring /and the world ends." The contrast is startling, just perfect. Love your style.
