Outside, Looking In

Updated on February 22, 2016

Outside, Looking In

I walked up to the border
Though I knew I really should not
It would only end in pain
But the pain, I had forgot

I kicked at the rubble stones
They scattered through the dirt
Colliding against each other
I wondered if it hurt

I once collided with another
Two souls suddenly entwined
Once lost and drifting aimlessly
Before our worlds combined

It didn't hurt at first
Though I already knew it would
Two souls collided anyway
How could pain feel so very good

I reach the border as night sets in
The moon is resting down low
My eyes burn fiercely with tears
As my heart takes a nasty blow

There he is, singing and dancing
Like we always used to do
Except he is not alone
She's dancing with him too

His world is bright and warm
Coloured with shades of ever after
As the tears begin to fall I turn away
My back knifed by their laughter

I head back to my world
It beckons to me from the darkness
It envelopes me in welcome
As I surrender to it, heartless

You see, I left my heart at the border
A secret message to find, for him
A symbol of what it feels like to be
On the outside, looking in.
