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.

Where did all the Passion go?

Lately I’ve been so tired
So bored of and with life
Replaced by responsibility
Weighed down and burdened by obligations
Duties to other people
To burn with a hard gem like flame
I wish it was easy to me as you say
But my heart is heavy
My lungs filling up
I’m drowning in the everyday

Where did all the Passion go?
Passed on
To another generation
But will they remember to smile after they’ve seen the world?
Or will they become like me?
