On The Wind
DC Martin01 Oct, 2012 06:10 AM
Borrowed a box of broken dreams and picked through a few, but none fit the hole within my chest, so I tucked a few just out of view and to the hopeless, I gave the rest. My feet led me to where I'll sleep tonight, so arriving I sat and leaned against the wall, as the rain it fell like a symphony in an abandoned concert hall, The wind it seems to call your name or perhaps that's just what I would like to hear, and the shadows deceive, for I do believe, sometimes I can see you standing there. Standing off to the corner, just on the edge of my field of view, smiling and asking where have I been, God knows, I'd tell you if I knew, My memories are what’s broken, that and everything else that makes me whole, an incomplete disaster, a staggering body without a soul, in search of what I once was, and hoping that I'll never find that place, longing to go back just one more time, to make up for my mistakes, But the wind it seems to call your name, or perhaps that's just what I would like to hear, and the shadows deceive for I do believe, sometimes I can see you standing there. So I'll keep on stumbling forward, as I fall backwards once again and keep an eye out for you my love, I'll keep searching for my friend, On the breeze I'll hear them whisper, your name so very soft and perhaps I'll borrow a broken dream that someone else has lost For the wind it seems to call your name, or perhaps that's just what I would like to hear, and the shadows deceive, for I do believe, sometimes I can see you standing there.

Life is cruel Martin, the people we want just do not care about us. They leave is completely broken and hanging while we wait that they pick us and fix us. Thanks Matty

Thank you Mo...I hope that you realize that life is precious and without losing someone or something precious that we may not value the next great thing that comes into our lives quite as much!
