I don't wanna go

Recommended Posts

I've never quite... belonged anywhere.

Even here I was a little bit distant,

on the edge of something bigger

because I was too shy to talk to you. 

(I'm sorry)

Even so, this place was like home,

wild and weird and wonderful.


I'm trying to write something final,

worthwhile, but all I can think of

is that I never cry but sometimes,


I know everything comes to an end,

I just wasn't prepared.


Sometimes I wish I'd been braver,

been here longer, said something nice. 

I guess I wanted to say thanks for having me,

it's been fun. 

I got to write what I wanted,

(or needed maybe)

learned to love poetry 

even more than forests or stars. 


I've said goodbye enough times,

but I'm still not sure what to say. 

I'm not sure if anything will be enough.


All of you are amazing

and I'm glad I found you, Cicada. 

I'll miss this strange, lovely place.


farewell then, 

Wandering Monster

you always were so supportive of me and my writing. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. I’m going to miss this place.
