A World Away

It’s midnight
And the rain streams
Down her face.
She closes her eyes
And remembers his
Love,
His eyes,
His voice.
Because he’s a world away.

Memories of stolen moments
And glances between the two.
Hiding their love
Between the book stacks,
Like star-crossed lovers.

Memories of their bodies closing the
Distance,
So that they may entwine
And make poetry,
Late into the night.

She is his blessed redeemer,
Liberating him from the darkness
Of his harrowing dreams.
He is her treasured muse,
Her guiding inspiration of
Lyric and song.

Lost between the pages of
Heartbreak,
She finds her words
With his name on her
Fingertips,
And pens flowing
Verses about him.
About sorrow
About wonder
About redemption.

As the storm grows stronger
And the winds blow harder,
She stands alone
In the downpour,
Wraps her arms around her body
And cries.

Because the storm holds his
Memories tonight.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
