Tangled Reflections by Lady Jewells (2011)
Reaching across time,
My mind reflects on thoughts of us.
We once walked our separate lives.
For a time, we shared our lives.
And soon we were intertwined.
Maybe it was too fast? Or was it too easy?
Or perhaps it was somehow overwhelming?
Our perspectives –
Our own reflections – are colored by emotion.
As we untangled our lives – it hurt.
Our own perceptions matter to each of us. In our hearts – we feel it.
Through our own memories – we reflect.
Our curiosity now seems almost surreal.
We remember times of happiness – the laughter and our love.
We also remember the feelings of frustration,
We remember our anger and the bitter emptiness.
Nonetheless – separately - we now move forward.
Divided – we will journey beyond.
Reaching across time, my mind searches – thoughts of us remain.
My Memories of us – are like timeless pieces of tangled emotion.
Volumes of Laughter,
Though I now stand alone, I am not lonely. I am Aware.
