Amongst the gusts, I thought I heard sweet sayings sent to me anonymously by a gentle breeze. I thought I heard the sound of your voice. Then all of a sudden my body froze. A surprise that took me over the curve. In the midst of my avoidance. You caught up and I foolishly turned around. Saw your hand reaching out.
Without a second thought I reached back out. To hold onto the hands that once engraved onto my body. To hold onto the same hands that once left a mark branded onto my soul. Forever & Always, ran through my head. A film collection unwinding outside my mind. It's us in between the rolling scenes of our past. And here we stand hand to hand.
Without a second thought I reached back out. Without a second thought you shattered everything around. You came forth with force and I once again was left on the ground. The sweet sayings turned into shards of jagged lies. Full faced, undisguised, you tried to enter your way back into my mind.
Desperately needing to claim the mark you branded on my soul. A branded stain unable to burn away. As the film roll goes in a frenzy. I saw my escape. I frantically stood back up and ran away. As you yelled forever & always. Focused towards the escape, I thought to myself not today.
