The giver

i stare at this blank page in 
front of me
and think
i am the only one out of sync

living on this narrow plain
nothing ever changing 
everything always the same

day in day out
everything perfect 
no worry or dout

its summer year round
but theres no color
 just constant sound

into the ocean i want to drift
my life feels so empty
But i have a special gift

i have the gift to feel
i am told special things
they tell me what is really real

they tell me of a time
where people would beg and 

my gift helps me see
i almost see color 
but im alone 
because its only me

im alone and lost in a perfect
