Mundane 1

False time that does not ring

I rant on of things still unseen.

It passes in this stillness,

I so ready to fade and forget.

All of the noise, the chaos and the pulse

of day after day filled with useless banter,

conversation, small talk about the weather and when our essay is due,

work– box after box stacked–

and the drying of dishes.

I am so tired of it all,

the mundane–

domination of my higher senses,

let go, I tell myself, but nowadays I am only clinging tighter.

And clinging to what?

Holding on to what?

To the very things I despise,

to what has become a tainted atmosphere of the art of living.

They whisper and murmur never giving way to the beauty of quiet,

speak of what?

Such useless things;

So disconnected in what they call this age of connection.

The echoes fill my head.

I try to curl up outside of it all,

there is no room to breathe,

everywhere I look there are people

cluttering every crevice of my life.

This selfish speech.

I need space.

I just need space

away from it all,

the voices

the thoughts

the patterns

the classes

the hallways

this life

the poison

of the

mundane.
-Eva M.M.

I am a young and enthusiastic writer, fresh out of highschool and into college at IUSB. I babysit and work and live life to it's fullest. I write. I read. I do yoga. And plan to become. Yoga intructers as well. I grew up on a farm and can't,t wait to move back to the country in my tiny house I have already planned out. Sometimes I'm a little melodramatic but rarely. I'm a spiritual healer, a hopeless romantic, a book worm, and very nostalgic. Thanks for stopping by.
