A Face From the Past

You wind me up in such a way

I don’t even know my left from right

You’ve taken away my sense of direction

And left me chasing after shadows suspended on dust

I’ve been numb for so long

That when the colour returned to my world I didn’t know what to do

I’ve forgotten how to live

And I’ve lived through my poetry

My stories and the songs I’ve mentally dedicated to you

Let’s just say I’ve never been the object of sonnets

I’ve never been called beautiful

Or loved as you have loved me tonight

I don’t know how to feel

I don’t know how to act

All I know is confusion in the darkness

The way your words caress me in the dimly lit office

The way it wraps around me and keeps me warm at night

The thought of you makes me smile more than usual

The fact that you are in love not just with my body

But with my mind is rare

Thank you

You are someone I could learn to love

Prompt: Go chase some feeling down a rabbit hole of sorts. Create with passion something intense and meaningful, be it meaningful to you or to someone else. But, mostly, create something that’s going to leave you feeling inspired.

    Wow this is very beautiful I particularly liked the lines:

    “And left me chasing after shadows suspended on dust
    I’ve been numb for so long
    That when the colour returned to my world I didn’t know what to do
    I’ve forgotten how to live
    And I’ve lived through my poetry”

    I really enjoyed, thanks for sharing.

    • “Shadows suspended on dust” is a quote from Will Graham in NBC’s Hannibal. Not sure if it’s in the books, I haven’t gotten that far into the series yet.
