Through The Leaves (poem)

Updated on August 16, 2013

Ticking

Ticking

Through the leaves I wonder

Brushing my face

Calling me back

Soothing

Fulfilling

Unknown

-

Ticking

Ticking

Cold stillness fills the night

Drawing me in

To waiting arms

Endless

Questioning

Nothing

-

I cannot escape

The wake of this moment

Which holds me entwined

Ticking

Ticking

-

Endlessly searching

For one more heart broken

Lost wandering soul

Ticking

Ticking

-

Is there anything at all

Outside the weight of this veil

Outside confusion and pain

Outside the comfort of hopelessness

Stroking my face

Using the night

Calling

Beckoning

Always

-

Ticking

Ticking

Lost inside her garden

With one more breath

Of all now past

Dancing

Endlessly

In love

-

And that was all

      Mysterious and inscrutable..............

      Awesome, yet enigmatic.............

      Perplexing, yet beautiful.

      You never fail to entertain us with your talents.

      The setting for this poem makes it so mysterious and perfect for the light romance. Leaves are like whispers against your skin as you walk among them.
