And I just want to run
far away from everyone
into the forest
into my haven
in the dark night
where no one can find
me where I can be alone.
I just want to go
away for a little while
and lie on the pile
of flowers and leaves
alone with my thoughts and peace.
I need this moment
We built this bridge, you and I
long enough that though
we are far away
we are still connected
within our souls.
Yet with every breath
eye to eye
the mirroring without words
the absolute reflection without
I have observed
within a short amount of time
how quickly that bridge is falling
breaking between us
And all I can think about
is to turn and run
though a part of me does not want to
before there is no turning back
before I fall along with the bridge
if we get
With the whisper of my voice like the wind in the trees in the chilly dark night, you hear your name and wonder who and if this it is all in your mind. Still hearing the whisper of your name over and over, you follow my voice with curiosity burning like a low candlelight flame within your breast…you shiver. Click click click under the street lights, over the cobble stones, by the church, and into the side streets. Click click click into the dark side streets you follow my voice into the blackness with no one in sight.
You look around
Left to right
Front and behind
You still hear my voice
whisper whisper whisper
closing in on you
Let me love the world! Please, do not keep me from doing so! Do not shut me away into the dark again! Let me love the world! Please, let me keep doing so! Let me love every day! To see those sunshine smiles on their faces! Let me love the world!
I feel like an in-between,
a thorn stuck in between two roses.
Split down the middle
that even expression of the experience,
bringing light to either or
shows result with no shine.
And, in my mind
to the very core
I feel torn.
Oh to even imagine what visuals flash in their minds with just one look whether at night or in broad daylight. Though capable to ignore, knowing those images are not good…it’s sickening.
And in the darkness an evil grin forms out of the blue with yellow,glaring, and crescent eyes staring straight at me. Laughter with no audible sound. Expression masked with a hooded, black cape. Death stares at me in the face.
I cannot look into your eyes no longer.
And if, when you realize, you ever wonder
the reason why I cannot look at your face
because another has replaced
the person I used to know…
a beloved companion I cared for and loved.
All I see is a stranger with a mask
filled with anger and hatred that
possessed the one I used to know.
And I prayed and begged for it to let go,
but it still remains and maintains its hold.
The more I try and try, I feel as if there’s nothing I can do
but to hold on.
Hold on to those happy memories
before what came to be.
I hold on to them
because they are dear to me.
I shall never forget.
I will hold on.
These rainbow smiles once colorful and bright, such a splendor in the sky that cannot be compared to any other. And with every look they make me smile, but they all begin to fade to gray. I regret for looking, now I look away. If I never peaked a single glance, these rainbow smiles would continue to remain. How can such happiness just simply fade away?
A swirling of thoughts within the mind and rumbling of mixed emotions deep within the soul. A category 5 hurricane and a volcanic eruption.
So much to do! So much to see! People to meet! The world is so vast and must be explored. There’s so much to learn, and want to know more. Though an adventurer at heart, constant with feet planted on the earth. Oh Restless Soul! So curious about life. Oh Restless Soul! So curious about the world! But never fear, although you do, to learn how to share the same yearnings with a Restless Soul like you.
