I thought we were once so close, knit together close enough to know what's it like, to be ghost to each other, yet wandering out into our own colourful way of life, just that we are chasing different colours now.
colours change, seasons change, people change, yet I remain the same.
We're chasing each other around the tree. The fox and me. Always just shy of catching the other. Sharpening our teeth on the air we each leave behind. You took the tip off my tail. And I ripped the hair out of yours. You're the reason my hairs turned white. It's the stress. And something else, something deeper, more profound. Something that gets me out of bed in the morning, but forgets to put me back to sleep in the evening. We've been running for weeks now. And we can't stop. I'm just waiting to see who drops first. I think it's going to be me.
Maybe I am following a light, A junction from where I took right Some days I'm just chasing a high, Is it just some words arranged tight Or is it chastising yourself through the night? For when the sun is shining bright, I love taking my emotions for a flight. I'm not hunting for any limelight, Nor do I have any foresight. I'm just driving through the misery and the plight, Knowing I will always stop at a red light Like a deer in the headlights I'm trying to be my self-guiding light, Try as I might.
Sometimes we don't even need a reason, but for days when the reasoning is strong, it must be upheld and respected. Cheers to all kinds of poets :)
I used you I used you so long that I broke you I tried to forget about the pain in my chest I tried to numb myself by chasing your love that was never meant for me I know you might not forgive me But- I'm sorry.
I truly never thought about it this way until I healed myself.
I once met a pup Who liked to chase his tail Never once did he give up Determined not to fail
Badly did he want his wagger Between his little jaw After he would stagger And then fall to the floor
Not knowing what he desires He strives for what he sees Even when he tires Knows what he believes
The days comes that I see His tail and his tongue Caught between his teeth All tangled up as one
After 20 million circles Tail chasing phene Jumping many hurdles Not caring where he's been
Finally achieving his dream He caught what he was chasing Success as it would seem The moment he's now facing
The moment he worked hard for The challenge he accepted A journey paw after paw He let it all go in a second!
We work so hard for what we want, take ****** all time to enjoy it, then we let it go like it was nothing. Make sure what you're chasing is worth it. Take a moment to enjoy your prize. It isn't the pleasure itself we seek but the pleausre in the journey
