Trip to Anywhere

Trip to Anywhere


If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you how much I need to take a trip to anywhere. And how I want to be somewhere with statuesque trees filled with birds and bees. Birds building new homes on the strongest of branches creating a safe haven for their family.  Honey bees, flit from flower to flower getting their nectar. Birds of song chirping in acapella; honey bees buzzing in harmony creating a symphony like none I have ever heard.

We’d laugh together whilst walking through the woods, feeling the delicate breeze on our faces. Somehow, the gnarly trees had an aura of enchantment and we were unsure if we were entering or exiting the forest. Our time spent together was joyful and addicting. I wanted it to continue and last forever. I must admit I wanted to live in a fairy tale.

What happened next was sadder than sad. I find it difficult to talk about as I choke back tears and grasp for anything that will keep me sane. Your echoing voice surrounds me with sorrow. I am devastated because now I know there is no tomorrow, with you.

My rainbow is colorless, the stars no longer twinkle, the sun is dull and lackluster, the sky is gray and threatening with fractal clouds. I feel the earth has stopped spinning as I stand in the forest with no entrance and no exit. I start to run, blinded by tears and uncontrollable fear. The gnarly trees stretch their limbs and carry me down paths of moss-covered pebbles and then all is silent and still. Where am I?  All I know is I am not with you.

I feel the urge to travel

before I unravel.

It has been awhile

I feel the need to smile.

I must get on the road

to lessen my load.

It has been awhile,

since I have gone many a mile.

I must ready the car

as I am going far.

Where is my destination

to end this frustration?

Hooray! Hooray!

I am finally on my way.

Wherever I may go,

do you want to know?

Goodbye to you and so long.

You’ve treated me wrong.

Wherever I go,

you will never know.

A trip to somewhere

A trip to nowhere

A trip to anywhere

It has been awhile,

Since I have gone many a mile

It has been awhile,

and I feel the need to smile.

  2. This is such a relatable article! I always feel the urge to travel no matter where i go. I can’t stay in the same place for long and be happy if it wasn’t for a person..
    Love the little poem at the end too! You’re really talented!

  3. “Goodbye to you and so long.
    You’ve treated me wrong.”
    -Me every time I’m working my last shift before going on a trip somewhere.

    I’m a RN and while it’s rewarding, it can really be exhausting. The feeling of freedom when I clock out and know I have a week off- or even just a few days- to see something new is what I live for! After starting my first job, I have more money to travel and I’m trying to take advantage of it every chance I get. This summer was South Carolina, New York, Canada, and the Dominican Republic- I’m hoping to keep this list growing for the rest of summer- any suggestions or places you’ve loved traveling to?

    1. You have traveled to some interesting places. I don’t have any special suggestions except to explore places where you have not been and want to learn more about.
