i wrote this at the morton arboretum. i hope u like it.

The crisp dead leaves cover the ground like a blanket,

Not unlike the blanket covering my heart.

It’s restraining me to like and never love again.

The clouds drift slowly over the sun,

And cast a shadow over all I once loved.

All who were close that I didn’t want to lose.

Those I thought I’d never see die.

I can feel a weight on my shoulders of stress and responsibility,

A weight that not even the whole world could carry.

I search for an outlet, a relief of this burden,

But where can I go when there is nothing to love?
