My Perception (2)

Tip-tap. Tip-tap. Tip-tap.

I wonder why, if i’m wearing flats, each of my steps resonate so loudly.

I want to be quiet. I want not to be seen…

I want to surprise you today.

But tip-tap. Tip-tap. Tip-tap.

The slower I walk the louder I hear it. Tip-tap. Tip-tap.

I even changed clothes so I didn’t smell like cigarettes.

I’m going to tell you i’m quitting… because it will make you happy.

But i’m not quitting.

It doesn’t matter though… because yesterdays Gerbera’s are wilting.

And you are staring at the ceiling.

And I turn and go, before you notice I was there.

Tip-tap. Tip-tap.
