Staying Takes You Somewhere 29/30 by Nico Lund


Which-
ever 
the 
way to 
go?
Up, 
down, 
same thing. 
Depending on
what you're looking for. 
When to move? 
But even staying 
takes 
you 
some-
where. 
The only 
constant is 
constantly 
going. 
Suffering 
is trying to make it stop. 
Stopping is like perfection; it doesn't exist.

I Am Enough 23/30 by Nico Lund


It's a simple tweak
Gentle touch and
Barely noticeable smile. 

The one just underneath the skin
Like maybe because it's always there,
Always tilted up without effort 
In a thought of kindness 
Or swoosh of sweetness. 

An Illusive opposite of shadow
A sensual passing through. 

What is that rising flutter in my heart?

A infinitesimal shift
With a colossal effect. 
A momentous rejoicing
With the smallest of sighs. 

Enough, enough, enough!

I am enough.

What If? 22/30 by Nico Lund



What if the rain never came?
Drip 
                  drop 
                               dry. 
There'd be nothing to wash 
The tangles from your hair,
Or the soot from your pores. 

What if the sky never filled with clouds?
Drip 
                  drop. 
Each lost droplet a lost idea 
For the clouds are the accumulation 
Of all the ideas and dreams 
Of the people down below. 

What if the thoughts stopped coming?
Drip. 
                                    Drip. 
                                                                     Drip. 
                                                                                                   Drip. 

What if?
