I am dull

Not shiny


I have not been buffed,



Or filed

I’d like to be the one


To show you,

Whoever you may be,


That mundanity is important

I’ll tell you in a whisper


That my brightest memories

Are my slowest moments


As time falls away


And I refuse to be consumed by it


I’d like to be the object

Of your slowest thoughts


I’ll ask, in a whisper


May we lay in silence and watch the world together?


  • sylviasearcher

    It read like mindfulness
    As I laid in silence and watched the world.
