The beginning and the end
Walking along the corridors of time
Seeing the sun set before it rises
Seeing birds die before the eggs are hatched
Seeing friends laugh before they’ve met.
I live that first time again
The first time we met
Barely a smile back then
We didn’t know yet.
Smiling until I’m back in reality
Feeling that same breeze rustling through the leaves
Feeling the pain in my body
Feeling the joy in my mother’s smile.
I live my precious life again
And our paths cross yet another time
We embrass, we smile, we laugh
Ah, now we know some of it.
Running faster than light
I only see darkness
I only feel cold
I can only hope for the best.
I glance into the future
And I see us again
We are… We are
I don’t want to see
I don’t want to know.
Because seeing is believing
And believing is knowing,
I don’t want to see this friendship’s ending
I don’t want to believe in that kiss.
- This Thursday I have totally ignored the writing prompt of Poetry Thursday. Strange thing: I thought it was a really cool idea they had but then, I don’t think I was inspired.
- Check out Poetry Thursday and cry your heart out every Thursdays. The concept is simple: share poetry on your blog.
