poetry by j matthew waters

the further away it seems

my worst fears
but a window to the world
exposing my hopes and dreams
as if they don’t belong to me

elbows on window sill
eyes blinking shut
palms supporting chin
mind delving deeper in thought

lonesome mockingbird
outside looking in
echoing a song I’ve yet to begin

some say I’m on my way
I say I’m already there
arms stretched out
and welcoming a light
that naturally never ends

december two thousand eighteen
