Before you go through the motions

mindless.

When everything is new,

exciting, tingly.

When the sun shines just right, breaking through the storm clouds

before they swallow you whole.

Before you disappear into routine,

checking off the boxes.

Is that how it always

ends?

Senses dulling,

Dreams dying,

Just surviving.
