When everyday life overwhelms me a bit,

I find myself fixating on quiet, little (un)happenings,

Beautiful despite their apparent insignificance.

Such as spaces between the words in a book,

Post-lunch dip on the busiest of workdays,

A longing for solitude even when in good company,

And daydreams about being anywhere

But wherever you find yourself at the moment;

The little somethings that may not be nothing after all.
