Not writing what I intended to,
only what I never knew I needed to know.
Learning lessons while evesdropping on my own thoughts.
Sometimes in the silence I hear nothing but the voices of others.
And yet, when surrounded by so many, the music and conversations of hundreds,
my own voice calls out clearly to my fingers.
Sometimes these fingers know more than can be told,
knowing me best when I’m distracted.
Not wanting to rhyme,
I prefer to make sense of what you didn’t think possible,
to find the beauty in what others miss.
Who says florals can’t go with stripes?
