not because I'm sad (which I sure am) but because it feels wrong to be where I am right now, and yet, there's nothing I can do about it.
and so I write lists - lists of dreams about things I'd pack next time, lists of dreams about flight tickets, visa and laundry soap.
sometimes they help forget, sometimes I feel like I'm doing the right thing for a little while. sometimes not.
and so I walk barefoot, wishing I would remember the feeling of soft red dirt on my soles.
and so I am trapped here, not knowing how to get out, that's why I cry - frustrated and not brave enough to do what I feel I should be doing, not brave enough to follow my dreams.
