a whisper and a little brush of the wind, right by my neck
the sway of the leaves and the howling of the night wolves
buried under huge layers of heavy flannels,
even though we know it’s all just a dream
I saw that flicker of that bright burning candle,
a bit of hope in a bleak universe
so since I now know how beautiful life can be
I might just capture that candle and keep it as my own
because as the crow flies high above the skies
I wait patiently for another candle to shine
a child who’s running, running fast and a girl who’s flying, flying far
what do these two have in common? nothing other than hope
hope, the faith that brings me hope at night.
when all seemed lost and they only saw a muted gray in their eyes,
grounded to the earth and pulled a bit down below
this girl and this child found their way up to the skies
and saw starlight.
when they turned away and soared back to reality,
the stars shone a bit brighter and wrapped their spindly arms around them in a hug
and the two gently snuggled back with the stars and the skies,
back at home.
What does it mean, when someone says see you but never came back?
When they promised to talk to you once more and broke it like brittle lollies
taking your heart with it, snapped in two neat pieces.
All the sweet silvery lies slipping off their tongue
and all the words they coated with honey and you believed.
You stay strong, they told you. Strong as steel.
But you collapse and can’t go any longer
if only they came back.
Have a wonderful day! Ily all ❤
