Nothing New - Poem by Laura Ballou

Think young forever
because today
may as well be your eternity.
And don't wake the little girl inside
because she died a long, long time ago
and the night is a sacred place
I want to explore
alone
And seep into the darkness
that becomes the morning we will never know together,
The dew glimmering on the flowers we will never see
As the brink of dawn
passes over me
So smile
as you say goodbye
as long as you don't mean it...
Allow your embrace
to envelop my insecurities.
