Been waiting an awfully long time

forever mostly

maybe since the dawn of time

To hear the echo to bounce around

and come back

That heartbeat that broke the silence

birthed this sadness inside me

Began this longing in my soul

Maybe I was eavesdropping on a private conversation

or my mind was playing tricks

when I dreamed a dream of meloncholy

and such sweet saddened bliss

The fading reverberations a farewell kiss

a fire raging in the heart

electric sparks stirring the air

awareness of this feeling

an emotion of craving

hard to dismiss

this spot right here

this spot a silent remembrance

of this echo that was my promise

a secret shared through time

it sits in silence

just a darkened spot inside my mind

this darkened spot upon my lip

and as I push and nudge

my thoughts wander and slide closer

to the edge and I could fall

Into the spot where I forgot

aching regret. Lost it all.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
