These Past Weeks – Author Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.


Walking in comfort-felt the warming flow of us

Thought we were synchronized and timed closely

Ignorant to the tasks that needed attention

Dormant under a pile in the corner of garage

It will get cleaned up in time


Nothing said but the temperature continued to rise

Maybe that’s why it felt warm to me

As quickly a cold blast beat the heat bloody

Dazed and confused reach for why

Groping for reason


Explosion blew my mind off

Anger sawed-off and wounded my ego

Truly ignorant I was-no clue of acknowledgement

What a way to arrive at the destination if we are together-

Or not

Just an illustration of how closeness is far

Warmth that chills

And ego that eats to the bone
