My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

A nothing of a prayer

Category: Creative Flash

So, I saw it there on the bar, scribbled in pencil on a scrap of paper, stuck under a dead shot glass. The place was dark, filled with smoke and people, people having a better time than me. I’m not really sure how I noticed it, or why I bothered to pick up that glass to read what I read. It was just there, someone’s thought, someone’s prayer, stuck under a dead shot glass, written on a dying scrap of paper. Just two lines, just a nothing of a prayer.

I want to be next to you right now, you so close, my hand touching your face. I want to kiss you slow, I want to tell you I love you with the voice in my head.

I put it back, left it there. I wonder if it ever ended up where it was supposed to go.

    Wow, that’s pretty poetic there’s a website/mag called FOUND Magazine, where they post stuff like that, that would have made a good addition, Good to see you writing again, I missed your insights
