NaPoWriMo Day 5 (Instagram) – Still

Hey you, how do I obliterate this feeling gnawing at the pit of my belly?
I just realized that I have been holding on to a lost cause all these years, yet it still seems like a slice of destiny waiting to act its part.
Where do I go from here?
Why am I still frozen inside this impossibility?
My heart is still tumbling out of my chest, spilling a thousand poems for you.
And I’m still spiralling and spiralling and spiralling down this tunnel, wanting to crash land in your saccharine heart.
There was a time when I was like-
For you, I’d thumbscrew the sun to a paper sky so you only know light.
For you, I’d blow a million dandelions so whatever you wish for comes true.
But now I want you to untether me from this never-ending uncertainty.
So, let me know if you’d send me a sliver of your love as a keepsake.
So that I’d still, still, and more still…
Or at least teach me how to love someone new.
