seth howard | ode to sophia


Taste the air, feel the sound forming
Around your body, breathing in the seconds
With each moment, forever but a heartbeat
Away, over distance, meeting in the street

You wouldn’t look my way, but I saw you
Walking there, beautiful, I had thought
The first time I ever had, things take
Too long for me to realize, until at last
It’s too late, the world has moved on
Your feelings have already come and gone
And I am left invisible, walking empty
Hallways as if in search of something
Hidden, glancing out a forbidden window

Shouts heard echoing in distant streets
It seemed so long ago, but why does it
Still hurt to remember, the way you
Laughed, the way you spoke, your smile
