Lost in the wind.

Updated on October 22, 2014

Drifted Apart

Overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless type
Two silhouettes bounded by the moonlight kissed shimmer dust
Silver, golden shades of love, a young guide and a child;
The dynamic sparks of its spectrum – only just as wild.
Distanced by a million secrets carried by a wind too strong
Some gold buried in all their fields of stars
But there’s a ghost in the sky and in the deafening storm
So hand in hand they sit calm
Like untangling a thousand knots on a forever tangled wire
Twisted, tied - an eternally knotted tongue
Grand gestures, harmonious hymns, not amounting to anything
Words unspoken, the guide’s hurtful silence
Drift not afar or forever from our hearts
Stroll not in your sweet world of dreams
Sleep soundly while we sing the song of the remorseful thief:
“Rob us not of our conquered feats
The joy of new seasons - of the tickling wet grass below our feet
The broken old tree house, the hearty laughter
Tears, like dew drops of emotions
Turned into little diamonds frozen halfway on our cheeks
And the cracks in the crystals – their faults so pleasing;
So raw and real,
Held in blue magic.
Rob us not of the smiles we smiled, the hurt we fought
The journeys we made and left behind.
Let the shards of humanity still remain within and sparkle bright Imperfections molded to perfection – a guide and a child
Separated by only just a few thousand miles.
