waking embrace

belief lost in the shuddering sand

sand scraping wind passing corners

to deliver nightmares to all the children

but is anyone there?

and where HAS the time gone?

I take a current walk in the past

awaken in the present

as the answers pass by and questions surface

resurface, retract and understand

the light covers and holds us close

this beautiful waking embrace

to grace your cheek

your lightly painted face

the guarded shine in your eyes

they try so hard to dispel the illusion of independence

as we stumble we fall

this is the latent impact

the heartbreak of an ordinary day

Bleak, yet lovely.

Thank you very much for the comment cy.
the most beautiful thing I can think of is the smallest of hopes..It's hard to capture with words though...
