Ocean of Souls

We are collectively
An ocean of souls
Filling streams of dreams
With thoughts of the future.

But as time silently escapes
I wonder about the one
Who is so far away.

I wonder, in the darkness of
The new moon,
Do they think of me
And every word we
Said to one another.

Secrets shared under
The bleeding willows
And sparkling stars.

Words like poetry
Pressed to each other’s
Lips.

I wonder if when the
Nights are cold and the
Branches burn on the bonfire,
Do you see my face in the
Flames?

Because I still hold your kisses
In my memories, like rain,
And I long to be drenched in
Their beauty.

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.
