It isn’t fair to cheat

Forever

To live, laugh, and

Love

Like there’s no tomorrow

To see eternity plus

one day.

What is, really isn’t

What’s not, never will be.

TRUST!

I love you’s fade into

The hushed abyss of perpetuality,

Into the well of eternal

Nothingness

Because

To see “forever” is an alien concept.

Unreal.

How must one see something, and still be

Blind?

How must one feel something they’ve never touched?

The same way a cat

Barks

Forever is a like a

Mirror

We’ll never see because

It comforts, yet contorts our

Complacency.

“Seeing forever” is this

Hallmark concept to

Cripple the flower, that is

Our selfhood,

From growth.

A struggling peony fighting concrete

“4evers” and

Losing
