Fold in half, then fold in half again,

You’ll disappear into the void

Within the day and all that’s left

Is writings, pictures, vacant emails too

As what we were is scattered to the wind

Like long lost stardust left behind.

And, just like that, we’re into the next term. But this time, I’m in a new school AND we are in lockdown. I have no idea where I’m supposed to be and when and people are so busy that they don’t answer emails.

I’m sure that once everyone gets into the swing of what they’re doing, they’ll be a bit more communicative. However, for now, I’m a bit lost and I have that feeling that I’m floating off.

It’s the same feeling you get when you watch a space movie and the main character does a space walk outside of the space station when they lose their grip. That feeling of slipping away and not being able to get back.

Of course, I’ve made that really over dramatic, but I have the feeling that if I stayed really quiet, I could have a couple of days extra holiday and nobody would notice. Which leads me onto my next point: it’s going to be very easy to get lazy at this point.

Sometimes being given the opportunity to get away with murder leads to, well….murder.

Much Love

    There really is that sense of weightlessness, isn’t there, when there are aren’t clear paths to what needs to get done. It is chaotic, and that can be hard. But it’s a real life instance of ‘going with the flow,’ isn’t it?

    The poem and prose are extremely well-written. And the image is well-selected–camouflaged, lazy, still a powerful creature. I’m sorry you feel understandably weightless, and I have no doubt you’d rather know specifically what to do (be weighted). With some dispatch, I hope you know.
