Afternoon nostalgias gathered on the storm clouds over the horizon…
The burnt rays of the sun painting the skies a colour of turmoil as I let the cool breeze wash over my senses,
The swinging pendulum of the mind trying to encapsulate a thousand different thoughts,
A thousand different memories of a thousand different lives that could have been,
Myriad colours of myriad images of memories flashing before my eyes as I stand still,
Taking a deep breath to calm the turmoil within…
An unknown pain fills my heart tonight,
For homes never had,
And places never visited.
Faint rustlings of wanderlust,
Echoing deep within my very bones,
An urge to take wings,
To leave it all behind,
In a quest for something more…
A nameless face haunts me,
Like a faint perfume,
Pervading my senses…
A fire burning in my soul,
A tremulous desire for closeness mingles with the delicious intangibility of my emotions….
And the cool breeze blows on,
As the knot ebbs and flows by turns,
A fervent desire,
to write you into my forever burns high,
As I burst into a song.
Letting the melifluous notes unravel my heart,
As yet another day slips into the oblivion of night…..
