poetry

this equation…

i tend to get lost
out in this world
aimlessly wandering around
leaving behind the footprints
i’ve laid
at times
weighting heavy
upon the hearts
that weren’t meant to be kept
nor are they
meant to stay broken
i’ve really never known
how it feels
to have a love
that wasn’t running away
i’ve been tired of rambling
and chasing shooting stars
but my soul
like my heart
are trying to find
their way home
with countless hours
staring at the drawing board
the equation is easily solved
with a factor of
a beautiful madness
easing my chaos
equaling a life
where dreams come true
but not like those
poorly written fairytales
because no matter
what any tale
may try to tell you
the best part
of this equation
is finding the beauty
in a mess of imperfections
