Far Off Bridges Make Me Cry

Far Off Bridges Make Me Cry

A Poem by Mindless Mindset
"

I'm running nowhere again...

"
If we were to hold our breath
Until we pass out
I think I might leave myself
And travel the world in my sleep

And the wind will whisk my soul
Into the skies above us
Singing travelers songs of long ago
That echo these lost years

Yes I'll run to them
These places where they'll lie
Now I'll run to them
To the ones I've left behind

Set aside our tears
And fears of the future that we hold
To follow the dark windy paths
That lead to somewhere

That somewhere...
The place where I left them
How do we get there I wonder?
"Follow the dark windy paths"

But I feel so safe here
But I still must find them
So I'll cry here for now
Until I become strong

Then I'll run to them
The ones that I left behind
Yes I'll run to them
The ones left in the light

If we were to hold our breath
Until we pass out
I think I might leave myself
And travel the world in my sleep

Down the dark windy paths
And into the light in which you are

Author's Note

Mindless Mindset
I've cried so much while writing this. I have an ultimate fear in my life that I can't let go of. But I have a mission to maybe save someone(s) someday. But how can I when I'm afraid to leave my youth and move on? Inspired by Misguided Ghosts by Paramore. Very beautiful, meaningful song.
