And looked for solace
Looked for peace
I looked at sunsets longer
And admired the colors
For about five minutes, then I got bored.
At the beach, I lingered nearer the shore
To feel the ocean spray on my face
And came home with tangled hair, I hated that.
I lit incense sticks
Let the smoke swirl around me
Then my allergies kicked in.
I walked the dog more often
Walked him longer
He hated that, he just wanted to go home.
I looked into people’s eyes
Instead of just looking at them
It creeped everyone out.
I went looking for answers
Spent hours surfing the Net
And got addicted to gaming.
I tried my hand at poetry
But since “love” doesn’t rhyme with much
I gave up on that kind of verse.
