Forever


As she sat by the window
Looking out into the space
Staring at the unknown figures
She thought of the years ahead
She thought of how far she has come
And how long she has to go
Forever crossed her mind
But she tried to dismiss it
Forever does not exist
She told herself

There is no forever
She repeated

She thought of all the people
Who claimed to love her
And those who praised her
She thought of those who hated her
And those who criticized her
She thought of those who brought a smile to her
And those who stuck around her
She thought of those who talked behind her
And those who rejected her
She thought of those who lent a hand to her
And those who wiped tears from her
She thought of many things that day

There is no forever
She repeated

And for once she was thankful
Thankful that there was no forever
She stared at the horizon
Trying to find what was beyond it
She held her breath
And sighed heavily
Forever does not exist
She told herself

There is no forever
She repeated

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
