Surviving, but with buts.
But

Megan Brink

Alone, we sit together,

Always hearing, but never listening,

Talking, but in a thousand different languages.


Alive, but lifeless,

Asleep, but not able to rest,

Scared, but not broken.


In love, but not lovable,

Happy, but not content,

Fearless, but afraid.


Torn, but whole,

Beautiful, but blind,

Unique, but just the same.


Searching, but never found,

Dancing, but with no rhythm,

Expressive, but emotionless.


Yours, but only borrowed,

A believer, but in what,

Truthful, but only in lies.



A fire, but with no flames,

An ocean, but with no water,

A hurricane, but with no wind.


Surviving, but with buts.
