The following post was written by Eve and posted at Crushed's site, they reminded me of something very real and I think it is excellent writing and wanted to share it with those who have not seen it as yet.
As shadows lengthen their ageless forms,
And a chill breeze snatches my soul away,
The ghost of a sigh echoes in my heart,
Held captive by scores and scores of forgotten yesterdays.
The sigh resounds, triggering heartache,
I sweep my eyes around this barren landscape,
Hauntingly familiar, hovering spirits of thought faeries;
'Tis the place of long lost dreams and buried memories.
Wander I often here, the wind upon my face,
Caught within the eternal boundaries of time and space,
Seeing for one moment, ideals glimmering in a haze.
What place have I here?
But then again, reality tends to disappear...
Hand in hand, skimming pebbles of first impressions,
I walk with old flames, repeating conversations,
Smiling, laughing, my self of the past walks.
I just stand and watch, reliving each paradox...
Lonely, the wind carries silent regrets,
It sweeps through my being; I have to submit-
A feeling of indescribable sadness and longing...
I like it.
To this country will I come when sad or just weary,
Till I return here for all eternity.
