Where Do The Years Go?

27 Feb

How does one make life slow down?

You live long enough
and certain present moments
parallel certain past moments.

So many people sleeping, partying, working their lives away.
In the blink of an eye
I went from being a 19 year old kid pulling my pud to Vanessa Del Rio videos
to becoming a 35 year old man
on the fringes of society;
wondering if my next piece of ass
will come in the form of anything but a 22 year old white chick.

My early 20’s seemed to lag in the mud
as I waited for something to happen to me.
Life was wide open then.
I had nothing but time to do whatever I wanted.

My mid twenties were spent preparing for something to happen to me.
The last 8 years of my life spent making something happen.

Life can appear to change so quickly.

    When I can’t sleep I play King of Limbs on repeat and imagine that my fingers are slowly curling and uncurling pieces of your hair. I miss you.
