have you ever…

gogh

Have you ever,

Dreamt without wishing for it to come true?

Have you ever,

Filled your hollowness with laughter?

Have you ever,

Stolen a smell to keep it just for you?

Have you ever,

Been saddened by happily ever after?

Have you ever,

Waited at a train station, with nowhere to go?

Have you ever,

Burned bridges across depths, far and wide?

Have you ever,

Cried for reasons you didn’t know?

Have you ever,

Hidden warmth in coldness you didn’t hide?

Have you ever,

Stared at the ceiling for hours with no thoughts?

Have you ever,

Forgotten names from stories so well known?

Have you ever,

Stuffed your face and you weren’t hungry?

Have you ever,

Wondered, what if, if only, how it’d have been?
