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!

    I’m seriously moved and touched by this, Mel. You have captured a feeling that everyone experiences at one time or another, but you have said it in such an elegant and beautiful way, making it completely yours. I felt this deeply.

    I am in awe of you. I’m glad you’re over prompts. Maybe this will help you with other things? Lol… I can’t wait for all your writing and deep feeling. You are a joy to read. Every word speaks to me. 😊

    Love and hugs and stuff!

    You weave words in such a way… it makes my heart fill with joy and love and puppies… it is a melancholy poem but I still feel overwhelmed with happiness because of the word baby you created…
    Love you all the love.
    Thank you for playing with me!

    1. I’m so glad you liked it! So… I think I’m over the prompt thing. I think. Lol! I wrote the title out as a line to start the poem. Then that whole poem came out. So I made the first line the title. It made sense to me. I’m so glad you liked it. I’m doing the space one too. Almost done. I gotta keep writing.

      Dammit! I just remembered that CLEVER gave me a prompt! Ima do that one. Way late with that one.

      Love you! Proud of you! You’re on fire with the art!
