It's October Again

and Collapsing tunnels loom
dimming the light
but we are here, not there
we who still move, still move somehow

and Boldly press on with love in layers
through fields rapt with romance
past collapsed tunnels
through openings that began as cracks
we make ourselves make our way
into the truth like finding revelation within a novel
while waiting beneath the desert
a flowerbed lies dreaming with a persistence
we once knew

October is a dichotomous month for me. Makes me sad and happy, despairing yet hopeful. I have not the slightest idea why.

wow.
"past collapsed tunnels
through openings that began as cracks
we make ourselves make our way".

I started thinking about my openings that began as cracks..in the end they alwyas end up with walls collapsing on me and yes...I make myself make my way through the ruins everytime without realising that I should avoid thinking that an opening is anything else but a crack.

I adore your poetry.

In love with the layers
making way for the truth
of a stillness I can't grasp
And the brand new now
is all I'll ever know. xo

October..ah, beautiful leaves, beautiful weather..beautiful state of mind.. But the leaves are falling, and sometimes, I'm falling into loneliness.
This is what October has been for me...too many mixed emotions.
Your writing makes me ponder.


LOVE!

hi tywo, yes, loneliness is something to think about. I think its like depression, there is mild lonliless and then theres that feeling of severe loneliness. That is something that you have to take action against if it comes on to you I guess. love x
