A Poem by light years in love
"

12/2014

"

 I've gotten really good
At not letting myself feel

Sailing through this life
  Surrounded by a charade
 Of my own making

My own beautiful subtle lie

  Hold me while you can
 For soon you will shatter
In the view of my dry eyes

 My hungry well

You will fall in pieces 
 Around my feet as I shed
Your skin

  Stepping over your holds
 Into a collapsing reality

 I've felt this awakening 
A great breaking away

  The winds speak of this glorious time

 The birds remind me that I am needed
The dawn shows to me, this is why I'm here

I've definitely experienced this type of situation, as I played a character role for years in life since I was a child. I lost who I was and all I would ever be. But then I found myself after all this time. It got pulled out of me again, and I found who I was. This poem of urs really depicts that type of situation well. Its quite phenomenal.

This reminds me of my friend. I think as rational beings, we tend to complicate our lives without thinking of better things ahead of us, so we lose our way to what has been planned or maybe what have we dreamed of to embrace. Life's kinda funny, to be honest. though, I'm pretty sure there's always that right direction in which we'll realize how important it is to see ourselves beyond limelights and deja vus, hahaha. Seriously, I think every person in this world encounters this feeling. Its probably a part of the human nature? Anyway, really enjoyed this one! ^^

Yes the facade of human artificial culture is pretty pathetic sometimes. I can relate to the nihilistic tone of this though I'm not sure of being saved by nature myself. This poem has many skins and transformed itself along quite brilliantly.

Excellent writing! It is so hard when one loses their self, some struggle to find themselves, and often some don't, but others do!

You will fall in pieces
Round my feet as I shed
Your skin

Love that stanza

This was a great poem of losing yourself in the beginning and by the end you found yourself again. Life always seems to work out like that. I enjoyed the flow, brother. Thank you for sharing. :)
