PEDESTRIAN PERSPECTIVE
(3/4/18)

our pasts
were filled
with self defeating
fallacies

insanities

private
hells
of our own
making

we've had
to fight
our way back
through the
madness

just
to reach
normal

what
you consider
to be
your everyday

your
hum drum
existence

forgive us
if we wax
euphoric
over the simplest
of things

activities

when
taking a walk
seems
the highest form
of perfection

you may
still
consider us
a bit touched

please
be patient

we've had
your fun

your excitement

and it almost
killed us

we'll return
from our hikes
eventually

thrilled
with the idea
of dinner
at home
