 Nothing special about today....

I didn't cry for the first time in months.

 I took a shower I took a shower and shaved it's been awhile, the hair getting, the hair kept getting stuck. I've been so out of practice I I've been so out of practice I missed a few patches. I was oblivious to the fact because my mind I was oblivious to the fact because my mind was elsewhere.

 Elsewhere. A place I hate to be. Elsewhere. Far away it takes mere seconds to arrive there. Elsewhere, are things are always distorted. Beautiful scenes twisted and corrupted by a fungus that devours everything formed by love.

 love..... an empty words rings in the air. I know you're there but I'm stuck in elsewhere and I can't see the North Star guiding me home.

 Nothing special about today....

I held your hand for the first time in what seems like forever. I've missed you and have neglected something that I'm supposed to hold dear. 

There's nothing special about today but I guess I'll leave my room and feel the sun while I sit quietly on the porch watching the squirrels play... And enjoy the serenity of a quiet neighborhood.
