Lost in a sea of souls I find you hard to miss -familiar- I can’t escape your pull
I flow -not with the wind- But with you Bending air as I go
My whole eternity is you A blue vastness -too great to ignore- From my perspective
I live for you As there is nothing else Quite as magnetic -although, I’m trapped for sure-
My naivete may live on Yet even I ponder The slight trembling in my heart Subconscious, or am I over?
There, a world spilling with ants So small- Yet visible with their feats of humanity -I can see it so clearly now-
Where once there were only specs- Now there lay a myriad of wonders Right before me -the haze clearing-
My confidence often a victim of gravity- So steady hands always pulled me up Right on cloud nine
I no longer feel the softness of those palms- Once my ever-aiding life -safety- I have fallen out of your grasp
The wetness of tears Staining my existence- Yet clearing it all the same I fall as the icy raindrops guide my demise
All hard and true- I must accept my punishment For I have lived on far too long And know much too little
Seeping into reality- I can feel every texture on my skin Every imperfection on the ground -forever taunting me-
Leaving the once continuous cycle- Venturing into the unknown Where-for once- A seed may grow larger than a planter could ever provide
A wild flower- Thriving in a sea of individuality Forever smiling at the sky Despite the abandonment
Although I let myself avoid the truth for years, I had to except it sometime. Unfortunately, that happened much too late- right when everything came crumbling down (much like a cloud-drained of it's rain).
