The Journal of Christopher Shin

A long drive to nowhere
07/17/2008 05:30 a.m.
I drove through the busy streets and listened to sad ballads. My heart beat broke the sadness with thoughts of ideals I was told when I was young. The ambition of growing up fast. To find the promise stripped away joy like a million fleeting wings. I saw feathers glide down on my wind shield, and cancer grow amongst the petals. A girl smiled and looked away as I glanced into another world, and we are divided by fiberglass. Then she kissed a boy next to her, and all I can do is watch the world find peace, but the darkness rages in me. I surrender to the velvet skies and the silver lightening that only shakes me to the core. Souls gone and I am a lone figure as I drag onward and forward. Why does it feel that the cold is teasing me, and the coat in my trunk begs to be worn? I wish that the clouds would open and take the sorrow in the four chambers, but all I can do is stand amongst the beauty and drown in my isolation.
