I Lost What I Never Had

I lost what I never had

gone before it ever was

like getting lost on Google maps in a city I’ve never been

still

this feels more real

because I thought I could taste it

the aftertaste of a meal never eaten

starving for a future that has already passed

the aftermath of a bomb that was never dropped

and I sit here wondering

what I was waiting for

watching airplanes fly by

off to destinations

I can only imagine

are more beautiful than here.
