I See You

I lost my soul
Where hope grows.

I let my joy succumb to sorrow.

And then one day,
I heard you cry,
In the graveyard of
Discarded dreams.

You looked so small
And beautiful,
And my heart split
Into pieces at the sight.

In the symphonic silence
Of the night,
It all made sense to me.

Every bit of pain
I endured,
Every bit of trauma,
Led me to this.

Led me to you.

I saw the future,
In the tears that streamed
Down your face
And the music of your
Sadness,
Written on your skin.

I want to take your hand
And swim amidst the stars
And feel their divine energy
Within your touch.

Because you and I
Are cut from the same
Cursed cloth,
And shaped from the quiet
Places in our minds.

You and I
Are just the same.

Heartache to heartache
And madness to madness,
I see you when they turn away.
I see you, and I am not afraid.

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.
