Long Walk
And when the dust settled,
He saw past the road,
There stood a lean figure of disappointment,
One of defeats and woes.

Their eyes met and hearts collided,
Where a sense of dismay resided,
And when tears unfurled,
A numb pair of legs guided.

An embrace of surety,
Is what a heart needs,
Not the past not the future,
But for a happy present it heeds.

And so she was hugged in arms with fervor,
One with the peace and calm she revere,
She had now found her other half,
All what was left was only a long walk.

The Walker
And hence I walked,
Following the path,
Layed down by the wind,
Of a unforgettable harrowing past.

Each step a hell,
Like glasses piercing skin,
Reminding the fights between,
A selfish man and a selfless queen.

Long days and long nights,
Hardly make a difference,
For a body wet in rain,
Of patience and of pain.

An endless path also ends,
When the walker decides to stop,
But a betrayed heart, less of a walker,
More of a pursuer, with limitless pain,
Only reaches the end,
Of its own.

Change
Change,
The Dark ones,
Sprawl out of sins,
Leave a morgue of principles,
Strolling on the path,
Of darkness.

Light,
Sublimating with it's shadow,
Becomes one,
Tire out,
To ever separate.

Creatures,
Inhabiting the depths,
Suddenly thrown onto placid void,
Suffocate,
But never die.

Men,
Bearing knowledge of a world,
That no longer exists,
With life plenty,
Merely survive thereafter.

Free
Flight like a leaf,
Gliding along the wind,
Going places, seeing life,
Everything around,
Yet not content.

Storms brew amid control,
Storms in mind that don't glide,
They fly in directions of heart,
Creating ephemeral conflicts,
But these storms wither as soon as,
Eyes open.

The hearts to create storms and sustain,
Do not beat with enough force,
And so taken wherever,
The wind wants to,
While tears roll, making the wind heavy.

The art of control, makes us weak,
Makes us strong, depends on our place of standing,
And the moment wings are discovered,
Storms are created, flight becomes flight,
Unlike a leaf, but like a bird.
Free.

Fear
I live in fear.
Fear of change.
Fear of uncertainty.
Frailty of my heart, where once strength resided,
Now where shards of reduced self-respect and confidence linger,
Distance apart from each other.

What must be said,
Of what might happen,
Amid conflict of a closed heart and an open mind.
Still the scratches of self-respect do shout from distance,
Calling ME that embodied them,
With feeble sounds of despair,
I turn around and miss them,
Amid the chaos and my weakness,
Knowing, they are my only path of salvation.

I imagine us talking,
In silent silence,
Where only they speak and I reply,
We talk for ME,
And the darkness around me burns in dancing yellow flames,
Outward, stretching a smile of relief and happiness,
On my now usually dead lips.
