All Tied Up

Whimsical and sick

Delighted though distraught

Diseased and can’t resist

With heart lessened, learned to not

Perturbed and taught to be tied in knots

Restricted, each breath comes to a stop

Halted in the silence then loud gasps in a struggle


To be swimming but losing energy

Trying to find you in some distant memory

Beginning to drown, reality is hard to swallow

To have no fears if what it means is to follow

I reach out and grasp at nothing

Desperation or hope

Maybe both

Underwater where you spoke

A piece of rope that simply broke

But still tied to you forever

The Shade

The opportunity finds itself

Wilting, fading to gray

Never here to stay

I failed to seize the day

And watched it slip away

Just out of reach

Where the rays of sun gleam

And I close my  eyes to sleep

In a shade of dreams

The cutrains close and open scenes

Passing in an instance

Or just to me it seems

Watching this play, pass by pass away

Under the shade of sleep where forever I will lay

And into never ending dreams where forever I will stay

Always

I was looking out the window into pitch black night

No stars in the sky to indicate the looming interest of the sun

I could wait in endless night

Thinking of you

I Dream the day away

I sleep in broad daylight

To feel the warmth against my skin, no different from feeling you brushing up against me

So gently, almost as if

I reach out to hold your hand, just once more

If I could

Only if I could

I’m here in the middle of the street

Every other lamp post unlit

Walking in and out of the light

Reappearing where I don’t want to be

I start to run

Hoping to find the darkness

If that’s where you are

I’ll follow you

Dearest of mine

Disappearing I’m

Losing the part of me

Trying to find

You

Where are you?

I can’t find forever but I found never

I never thought it would be this way

It’s strange isn’t it?

I’m disappearing too

But somehow

Wherever nothing and never cease to exist

We won’t be

At least, not knowingly together

And it makes me wonder

How could it be that

Somehow, I will still always love you
