the clock strikes midnight

what if your path

binds your feet

what if the future

becomes the past

again

alone…searching

for what

for-get-me-nots

at last

i know defeat

i did not look away

i was looking to

someone…something

if you would confess

i could move again

and forget

the betrayal of heart

and trust

feel there is never

an us

i close my eyes

to remember the good

while i still could

string them on a short thread

no regret

in you leaving us

in the middle of a memory

that did bind my feet

i opened my eyes

as the clock stuck midnight

New Year was here

wiping away the last tear

i smile one last time

across the miles

the wind carries it far

its been a long time

since that wish on a star

i stayed to long

in memories

where i never had a chance

to belong

always outside looking in

at the end

do no harm is my path

even in the storms aftermath

my feet know

which way the winds blow

after i let go

    1. i decided to go barefoot more often, and i liked the energy that came from the Earth as i walked ….it got me to thinking about those shoes strings being tied and i realized i was walking a repeating path so to speak…
      i’ll write you about it sometime šŸ™‚
      you sound more at peace..it’s a good energy
      Thank you for your wishes…i will stand in the vibration of those words šŸ™‚
      Take Care…You Matter…
      Blessings

    1. even in Winter..you need to feel the earth even if just for a few steps šŸ™‚
      though on snow not ice…
      i just saw this, i seem to have got lost again in the mundane of world of sanity šŸ™‚
      Hope you’re doing well these Winter days before Spring
      Take Care…You Matter…
      just me
