Looking out the window,

I watched as the green leaves billowed in the breeze

Even as I did, I envied them their freedom

And carefree nature

Their immobility seemed not to bother them

They always seemed to be saying something to me

Their silent messages soothed my soul

Though understanding of them I lacked

I much preferred this beautiful melody of nothing

To the sad and filthy excuses for words

That most people had to say about their fellow kind

These leaves,

They appeared to look out for each other

And for me too sometimes

When I’m too tired

To deal with others like me

For me,

This serenity, this ambience

Was perfection

The best way to delude myself

That time had indeed stopped to give me a breather

The perfect escape
