Walking over the fields of dark forgotten pasts

Feeling the wind blow through my hair

Chilling my bones

Keeping my body in a cold wave

Desperation filling my body with each step I take

Making me lust for the times where the sun shines

Where my smile has returned from the shadows

I can feel you embracing me

When my eyes are closed from the darkness of the world

I can see only the happiness and sun I wish for

But reality cannot escape the soul

 

My eyes open upon it every day

And every day

A piece of my soul shatters and falls away into an

Unknown universe

Dreams fill me with the hope of a better place to be

Evolving into reality when I lose myself into my toxic plans

Where all I want to be and do

Lives as strongly as a beating heart

 

Gasping, I open my eyes when feeling the rain upon my skin

Clouds hover above me and let their contents fall upon earth

My tears mix with the rain

A deep power within me fights to break free

but I am frozen to the ground

The wind blows

Rain falls

I am frozen within nature

I breathe in the fresh air from the innocence

Of childhood

It brings me back alive

Cuts through the strings holding on to me

 

In one breath I am freed and I run

Escaping my past and running to the future

Which is clouded and mysterious

But I keep running

 

With

Every step

Every breath

Every blink

I come closer to touching Paradise
