Meadow

by cumbercrawl

I’ve been walking for day in this meadow, toward an end I couldn’t see

From time to time I came to meet a tree, with his arm reaching to me

*“Come lay beside me, I’ll shelter you from the wind*

*and from the howling of time that bends”*

But quickly the tree disappeared, as quickly as the ones from before

Suddenly you’re left with nothing, but the decaying fruit he bore

I dip my teeth in what is left hoping that the memory subsides

Is it me or from the wind, I can’t forever hide?

Eventually the howling came to an end, and I sat contemplating an elusive end

But the winds started claiming me again, as it’s fingers ran across my skin

And the dirt filled my lunges as a disease rising from within

You stuggle and fight it but eventually you give up

Hoping that someday things will naturally loosen up

Maybe I was born to walk into meadows and drown into seas

Maybe this is how things where meant to be.

I’ve been walking for day in this meadow toward an end I couldn’t see

I wish someone told me what depression felt like before it claimed me.
