Somewhere Past Surreal

Somewhere Past Surreal

A Poem by Michael G. Smith
"

That old famaliar song that used to belong to you and someone else

"

"Our song" obsesses, somewhere past surreal
As a wayward shadow's breeze breaks free
And light enters thoughts, overtakes “without you daze”
Where, everywhere your essence spills
Drops of breaths upon my skin as pianos begin to play

 

I feel the air of specter’s dance
The ballad's passion luring ghosts from long ago
With bitter sweet melodies of elixir's tears
The drops of, "where did our forevers go?"
And lyrics start to drag me down love’s forgotten roads

 

A smokey, sultry voice accentuates simple yesteryears
Before, left unsaid words, that made you go away
I fight not to see the sunrise reflecting morning eyes
Your endless smiles, walk again beside
And mend this fragile heart, if only for today

 

Somewhere past surreal shudders with...
Awakenings by the apparition's shattering kiss
Sending the tides of song receding into a now silent mist
Where the yearning unrestrained, strives to linger on... 

Within the obsessing reminisce

Yes. I think we are always trying to answer why couldn't it last.
Excellent description of the power of a song to remind you of something. Savored this line for its richness: "Awakenings by the apparition's shattering kiss"

Thanks again.
A soft melancholy in this, the song now only a reminder of the past. I am intrigued by the recurring concept of "somewhere past surreal..." Those moment that grab the soul and stir thoughts unbidden... Thought-provoking write, Mike.
