over there

over there

A Poem by light years in love
"

I am standing on the edge

of the divide

 

Somewhere between

this life and eternity

 

Here the sirens struggle

to pull me back

 

Knowing if I step over

this boundary

 

Forever to them

I am lost

 

No longer will

their torments stab me

 

Looking around for you

 

I can only stay a moment

for one more glance

 

Yearning for

one more touch

 

But my heart is quickly

coming to an end

 

Like a clock whose hands

are slowing to a still

 

The closer I get the more vibrant

my thoughts become

 

The more the black

becomes old

 

I try to feel sad

 

But this smile

won't stop turning

 

The lights

won't stop shining

 

I am realizing that

our dreams where true

 

That this reality

is the lie

 

And

over  there

 

No more tears

will we cry

 

 

Instead my own light

will shine upon your face

 

My warmth will encase you

until your hands clasp mine

 

 

Only then will I be able

to pull you from the mud

 

From the sediment

that holds you in place

 

 

I'll show you a kingdom

that has been there all along

 

And together we'll share in the freedom

that our souls have longed for

I enjoyed this poem as well! I could feel you going in between life and death...and trying to be pulled from it by the person you love! I thought this was amazing. I love your dark themes. Also the picture went really well. Thank you for sharing. :)

Aaaah such a beautiful write, full of a feeling, empathic skill, to be with one leg on the other side, and with the other still in this world, I just admire the power you bring, whitin your style... it makes me wonder what happend to the persona this time, for I can hear the sirens vividly.... but how nice the battle is, on the exact moment, of two parallel worlds, it's a duality in itself... fantastic music here, too, it really brings me there. I wonder how this kingdom is... how it looks like, do a second part please... ^^ thank you for transporting me as reader there. Excellent buddy!
