Warming embraces never given,
Missing Kisses and untold bedtime stories,
The dance we should have shared.
They all dissolve along with you.
My supposed shield of protection,
You wandered the gravel barefoot,
And stood invisible for the time passing.
Tears flowed as rivers,
Hearts were worn like old dolls,
And chances were tossed over your shoulder.
The cycle never ends.
In the frame, you see only yourself.
All of us fade in your eyes.
You question why no thread links me to you.
Your ears hear false truth,
Accusing others of your crime.
Just turn the dial.
You stood behind metal gates.
Opening and closing, time and time again.
No time to escape the thunder trailing the lightning.
Your memories lay faint,
Cutting at my strangled heart.
I pray for your sanity.
The ringing of your voice calls to me,
But I see the truth behind your request.
It's as it has always been; for you alone.
The fences have been built,
All traces of sand were washed away.
Your sight isn't strong enough to detect the barrier.
Through the wires we will speak.
Your love belongs to you and I still wait for a pint.
I stay near, but never within your grasp.
A/N: This poem took less than 40 minutes to write, including the editing part. This was actually about me and my Dad. I just had to write it. It was like something just clicked. So, I picked up the pen and started writing without thinking. I like it. It made me feel better.
If you like this then you should go read 'Wildflowers'. My friend's english teacher is going to use it in her class. They're actually going to study it. (Talking about 'Wildflowers' here) Im a bit nervous and excited. I'm also very flattered. :)
