“Who are you? Answer; you are who you are in this given moment. Label-less. Limitless. Remember that from this day forward.”
― Connor Franta, A Work in Progress

Your hand mirrored the action of my breath, 

it was being held. 

The clouds above shrouded out the radiant light.

Shadows carved creases in your face but my grip was tight.

The wind was woven in your hair and it gently caressed your cheeks.

I began clinging to despair as I sensed our bond getting weak.


I think I was the eye of the storm but I felt blind.

My fingers began slipping, 

and you accepted leaving them behind.

My mind raced like the riot before us.

A cultivation of random chatter is just a misunderstood chorus.


Pitter patter is the crestfallen song that plays as the children prance in the puddles of my tears. 

The thunder claps applauding my fears.

In the midst of this chaotic storm,

I cannot feel you near. 

The author's comments:

When I write, I express the most potent emotions that boil inside me. At the time this was written, a close friend of mine was slowly becoming more distant from me. Regardless of what I did to maintain the friendship, it continued to fail. I felt so unwanted and unloved because it was unclear what was destroying the two of us. This was truly a difficult time in my life. They changed and I realized that I did not miss them. I miss the person they used to be. Learn from this that people come into your life as a blessing or a lesson. They were a lesson.
