The soul of liquid in life colored blue

I will age
My appearance will mirror journeys
A body forced by gravity and time
My mind will leave me
Travel to an unknown universe
Losing breath slowly, becoming absent
Little paths towards tomorrow land
They will labyrinth the history of my life
On my face, line every spoken smile
My voice will tremble with experience
All the choices I made in routines gone
They will sketch my eyes with longing
Souvenirs floating in a sea of regret
Life boats will fall short to save them
It’s for the books written in my past
I will exchange my tomorrow for yesterday
Only in my dreams as reality sets in
Years will pass in a matter of minutes unwinding
Stitched melancholy on a tapestry of dances
Outraged at the sight of sunshine through the window
That once held a vision of you and I

This was written as part of LemonySugar’s prompt for this week, “liquid”.  Not sure why but this poured out when I thought about the “prompt”.  I’m all growed up now!  LOL.  Go check out her beautiful brilliance if you haven’t already.  I’m such a fan of this lovely babe!  You will be too!
