~Nothing Else Matters~

~Nothing Else Matters~

A Poem by AprilRN1210

.........

"




“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.”

Henry David Thoreau




 






No matter what we’ve been through

you’ve given me hope for something new

trying to dry all the tears that I’ve cried

dying to feel alive… again… inside.

 

Accepting the way I feel for you

has opened my eyes to a different view

no longer trapped in cracked mirrors

seeing facts a whole lot clearer.

 

A world apart stands a simple man

holding my heart within his hands

spilling the sand, we watch it scatter

love expand s--so nothing else matters.

 

When the madness of sadness starts to creep in

I’m stronger-no longer- do I have to pretend

fear fades with each breath that I take

shaking charades made by mistake.

 

Trust I feel and I share with you

kinship of friendship accrued and grew

we’ll get through each path we choose to pursue

these three words don't always spell disaster

I’ll be loving you and nothing... else... matters.

Oh , my Romanticism . Haven't seen this for a while. In fact is not very common around here (The cafe). The use of intense emotion as an authentic source of aesthetic experience, placing new emphasis on such emotions as apprehension, horror and terror, and awe. In this writing we find all of them. In fact this is probably the "darkest " writing I have ever read from you. I can only assume the reasons are clearly described in the writing so there is no need to put them on show. I really relate to the gesture of the writing. You standing at the top of the castle, bruised and battered emotionally , a storm coming, winds , grey skies falling upon you , your black cloak and the image of the sun at the distance in its reflection that person that will still be there for you until the bitter end.

Nothing else would matter.

Thankyou

Wow!!! well, keep smiling always.....!!! you are welcome!! :) :)
Ah, this touched me. I really get the sentiments here. Trying to open up to new love after hurt, moving forward, moving back.
Now, the font colour? I know it matches the pic, but it doesn't match the sentiment, at least for me.

Much softer, although I would probably still go dark.
