Pretty old to me but new to here
hope you like...!Curiosity
Falling through the lines of desire
I try to visualise
The gateway to the otherworld.
Why can I never
See the things I really need,
They never stand in front of me.
They just fade like my mind
Or a ghost that is always there
Like some kind of stalker.
Playing me a fool,
I am helpless and trapped
In the limited reach of my mind,
A locked door, a window barred
And four walls of nothing.
I cannot walk anywhere
Or jump or swim or fly.
I cannot reach the other side
And even when the doors are open
Or the windows unlocked,
There is still a wall even if it is just air.
What do I want? What do I desire?
What is on the other side?
Tell me, Is it not for me? In Death
All roses fell as she collapsed in my arms,
Stained by red patches down her back and waist.
I grieved in silence, But not for her death,
But for the things from me she broke and left.
I remember the way she used to look at me.
I remember the smile upon her face,
I remember her strikingly radiant glow,
And I remember her trust in my faith well kept.
I wish again I could feel her warmth,
And drain her of all tears that flow.
I wish I could’ve been elsewhere that time,
And knew she was safe, and living on she goes.
I wanted it to return back to then,
But fate I see has a game of it’s own,
Abide by it’s rules we can only play,
Try to avoid and I would in vain.
The only option allowed is to lose,
For my time and strength is all I paid.
I remember well our once sacred dream.
The secrets she held only in her heart,
And now it strikes me, that well-known phrase,
Repeated to another, “In death do we part.”
