Selective hearing

In a world where noise is king

One must pick and choose

Information overload

Destroys a beautiful mind

Trying on dresses

A closet filled with options

It can take hours

Finally, find the right one

This better match the earrings

letter go

Tore up the paper

Tossed them into the wind’s whim

Turned and walked away

Cold sidewalk is the new home

For what was once love’s passion

You see a blank stare

She says she’s talking to God

Listens for answers

She knows you don’t believe her

When she says he hears her prayers

too cool

The two girls giggled

Slurping on the popsicles

That were melting fast

Summer days are like that too

We giggle, they melt away
