The leaves are falling, just like I used to.
Until life allowed me to start anew
I cannot revert to how I was before
but I don’t know
what sweetness tastes like anymore.
Chills in the air crawl up my spine
while the ground gets painted golden.
When I consider making you mine,
I realise we’re both too broken.
The breeze uncloaks the trees,
Reveals the barren souls within.
We’re just two empty bodies
Doomed, never to fall again.
My legs wrapped around his body
His wise words hanging above my head
Bright brown eyes delving into my soul
It has been a while
Since I’ve met someone
Worth falling for…
(Somebody stop me)
I saw the universe in his eyes
but finiteness in his words.
The space between those unspoken
Enlarging the one between us.
Maybe in an an alternate reality
His actions will speak louder
and he will look deep into me
and see Forever.
I put my phone away and intrepidly look up at the path ahead. I am in a state of metempsychosis. My soul has been converted from a robotic slave to a free human being. I am in control of my thoughts and desires. I feel like I can accomplish anything! But when I try to lock eyes with other humans, I am in awe. Everyone else is still entrapped by their screens, not even aware of my gaze. My pleading eyes have no impact. This is the reality we live in: one in which we constantly attempt to escape reality. No matter where we go, we are always alone. My liberated soul weeps for mankind.
Be close to your parents;
You are their extension
and their portal to another existence.
Allow them to marvel in it.
Your music will honour your soul tonight
And those who have died aimlessly
Victims of a world that values currency
Death can be more appealing than life
For the eternal peace from this reality
May seem a more logical choice
during these hard times.
Hate is the President
Intolerance is the Vice.
Well, I refuse to accept
that no more good remains
On this planet.
It takes but only a moment
With a familiar song in the background
And your imagination running free.
In the end, it matters, indeed.
The sun kissed my skin
Its rays dispersed into my membranes;
And for a moment it shrouded my pain,
Then seeped into the clouds.
The taste of its vitamins
Its kisses failed to eliminate
Those you bestowed upon me.
