Love travels sideways, Down dark alleys, Along winding country lanes;
Arrives late, Hesitates too long, Leaves early;
A journey to take, A destination unmapped, An invitation to linger when we least expect it.
Her clear lazuline gaze ******* my clumsy attempt at transparency, an unambiguous hesitation the length of a skipped heartbeat. I watched her eyes darken and spool as realisation ebbed and flowed, and ebbed and flowed again. 'Let’s go,’ she said, pulling me gently to my feet. 'And listen to the ocean breathe.'
There was a rain of tears with smiles, and a breeze of warmth under a cold sky. A fluffiest cloud running over the fences, and a pair of plants sitting on the benches. Birds walking down by river lanes, and cats flying by the window panes. A rhyming words out of the barking dog, like a song sung by the beautiful rug.
Nothing special. i was just imagining my stupid thoughts and ended up with these words.
This is not living what I really do when I count all the days to go it is easier to forget when I sleep but when the sun passes through the window it comes back faster than I can blink the two decades have been enough for me how many more will I have to see Everything comes and go, nothing remains there is uncertainty in all the lanes More steps ahead, I go beyond towards the neighbouring severed bonds.
By mistake, I joined the rat race, A one off, felt so out of place, All speeding at a hectic rate, So, I was in the wrong lane, great! When changing lanes was a risky business, Home in one piece, that's all to say, I guess!
Everyone always wants to live in the fast lane. And they all tell me I should do the same. But why should I?
I don't want to run by people who could enrich my life I don't want to go a hundred miles a minute.
I want to enjoy life. Stop and smell the flowers, Not see them and say "oh how pretty"
I want to love hard, Not much.
I want to feel the soft embrace of a dedicated lover Not just of everyone who throws an offer my way.
If I'm being completely honest As long as I reach the air and finally feel my colors change I'm okay with whatever happens around me
And maybe when I jump in a car with some pals and scream with them "ROAD TRIP" I'm okay with running a hundred miles a minute.
But someone, once I'm in that left lane, Please remind me to stop and breathe. Remind me that life isn't just the wind blowing in my hair or the music turned up loud
Life itself is hidden in the dull moments.
And don't just remind me that life is worth living through those dull moments Remind me to cherish how slow things can go. How beautiful people get when they show you their souls And only in dull moments and awkward silences can you see that in them
Only in loneliness can you find out who you are when you stand alone
Always remind me of those things Because when you start running like that you get addicted to the adrenalin
But if you slow down, If you see how people are made of comets and stardust Maybe you can see that you yourself are, too.
If you live your life in the left lane, How can you take the proper exit? The exits that hold the best times are off to the right.
Don't tell me to live in the fast lane. I don't want to brush past people I don't want to be inside this shell that keeps me from slowing down
Thanks for your offer, but I think I'm well off I have flowers to smell and people to meet
