"The Path"

I walk down through the stone steps still hot from the day sun, I don't know where this is heading but I want to explore, see what there is, 

The tunnel is also welcoming me, I should see it's inner beauties. But hard  to understand it, I can go and have a look myself and find out. 

Now I'm standing right under it, seeing the darkness, a black whole of insecurity and excitement I start walking down.  

I'm falling, I feel I'm falling, 

my legs holding on to the steps, I can feel the cold air. Salt and waves punching through the rocks, I can't see all that... 

I stopped, stayed softly on my ground like a prey caught. I turned around and started heading back up to the spotlight.  

I see it! Up there teasing me from far away, too far away.  

Just a while ago I was right there, how did I get here so fastthe darkness hypnotized my heart.  

My mind fell into the depths of beauty and darkness, made me a broken compass itself...

I like like film making and photography. I started gaining interest in writing from the moment I started reading books. I began reading books at the age of 17. Now I can't live without books!.. more..
