Keep Moving – Poem by Me

I miss when all we wanted
was for things to speed
up, the trees and melted sky 
blurring in the rearview
mirror. 

Climbing under tables 
in both restaurants 
and at home, 
unshaven, knobby legs 
running down
the streets and embracing 
the cuts and scrapes
that come with falling. 

I hope you enjoyed this piece! My sixteenth birthday was a little while ago, and I’m kind of hitting a point where I actually wish time was slowing down a bit. I mean I don’t actually want it to slow down, but I can appreciate the childhood I so desperately wanted to fly by when I was younger. Please feel free to leave feedback and writing challenges in the comments. Stay safe and healthy out there.

    Amazing poem!! Kudos to u. Here’s a writing challenge: We all have had people in our childhood, with whom we were best friends. But now they are little more than strangers. And it hurts because they used to be your ride or die. So I want you a write a poem to your ex best friend.
