The Grass is Green

Lying here with her
She’s asleep
I’m watching the movie, the volume’s low
I realize there is no longer
That constant existential subconscious feeling
That there’s somewhere else I need to be
Somewhere better
Where the grass is greener

Right here, right now
In this bed
Right next to her
While she sleeps soundly
Is where I want to be
And no other place
No other place exists
This is the only place that exists

My whole life
I’ve been searching for the greenest grass
But now I’ve found it
The grass has never been greener
And may never be any greener

This is a great moment
So I need to take a step back
Acknowledge it
And enjoy it
