Autumn / Poem

Autumn (written by Sarah Bennett)

autumn always feels the same / or / I always feel the same in autumn / stepping out into the evening is a swirling of loneliness / not the hopeless kind / the matter-of-fact kind / this does not scare me anymore / it’s like returning to an old friend / and I am unafraid


I don’t know what it is, but something about the changing weather and the cooler evenings brings a sense of nostalgia and loss. Not necessarily overwhelmingly, just a gentle reminder that things change and are not always how you imagined in your head.
