Before this new world, there was color. Majestic blues hung over dancing golden blades. Whole sections bowing in succession, giving way to the earths great breath rolling down from mountains nearby. Full of promise, full of hope.
Now today, where land meets the sky there is almost no separation. Its like glancing at an empty sheet of paper, featureless and dry.
Mile by mile.
Moment by moment.
Lonely house after lonely house.
All of it passes me by - out of view.
I know I've been here before, I know I'm lost so I glaze over and go into the deep in search of you
I'm at depth and see flashes of light. Some here, others there...each one has a familiar air. They all travel in one direction, so I follow the source. I see my deepest desires, hopes, my dreams, my pride, but its all par for the course.
I go a little further, And there at the center, I find my muse, and sometimes my mentor. Stay awhile she says, and already I'm feeling better.
My hand slips
My head drops.
I catch myself like in a falling dream.
I'm prompted to move, and I emerge from the deep. Re-energized
Those fiery feelings...and just get... through.
"What were you thinking of just now they ask?"
It twirls on the tip of my tongue like an experienced dancer. The truth won't leave my lips because there's no need to answer, but I guess for the reader....I'll digress.
Two circular hues of blue that command my attention
A defined crease between the loveliest shade of pink I have ever seen.
Tiny freckles dotted across a tan backdrop, perfectly placed.
Goldenbrown intertwined with coral streams tracing right down to every curve I know....
And a familiar voice resonating and reasurring - Always deserving my best and never my worst.
Before days end, I know I know I'll be tired, and need her again, so I'll go back deep inside, deeper still.
