Changes

Published October 21, 2014 by atirahjewel

We’ve come to a turning point,

A place where we are made to move on

From where we are now.

A wonderful new opportunity,

To grow, to evolve,

From whatever it is we now are.

And yet,

I wish we didn’t have to leave this place.

I wish we could stay here and live,

Like we have lived for so long.

That whatever change is approaching,

Is but a dream I am dreaming.

Because here, time exists at a standstill;

Not ever really moving or changing.

Here is a place draped in feelings,

And with memories existing in

Every scent, every corner, every glance.

Because of these that have always been,

I am able to recreate my

Most recent years and thoughts.

To make myself feel the same as I once did,

As I sat in the same place I do now,

Giving the unhealthy illusion no time has really passed at all.

I am trapped inside an asylum of mind,

And no matter how much I focus on making new,

Old memories lurk against every wall,

And are attempting to be relived,

Because here, nothing is ever different,

Here, nothing is moved.

Here, I am able to remain that little girl I once was,

In love with the idea that nothing ever has to change.

And that is exactly why,

In these moments passing,

And in the future to come,

Nothing can be allowed to remain the same.

Sweet child of mine,
You took my hand,
You took my flesh,
And now the sky refuses to smile at you.
Murderous.

You watch as the darkness falls,
The only light you will know,
But instead of tears,
You produce a smile.
Relentless.

The wounds you have caused,
Scars that will never heal,
You fly on your broken wings of withered dreams,
And sing good-bye to all the angels.
Odious.

Our tear-stained farewell,

Is burned in my mind,

Your eyes no longer shine for me,

Your heart no longer beats for me,

Away you helplessly withered,

Until there was nothing left,

I wasn’t even able to say good-bye,

Farewell,

And now,

The only memory that remains,

Is the sugary taste of you on my lips,

I look forward to the future,

And hope fate will allow our souls to meet again,

I’m sorry for it all,

All of your pain,

All the time you suffered,

I hope to see your eyes again one day,

And that bright smile you always wore so proudly,

One day I will see you again,

But for now,

Farewell.

My dear, my dearest,

Good-bye to you,

As the cloak glittered with jewels finds you,

Oh, what sorrow follows tainted love,

I’m sorry you had to go,

Ripped from me,

And ripped from my heart.

 

My sweet, my sweetest,

Farewell to you,

Your body left to decay in the filth that made you,

But don’t worry, you will not be remembered tomorrow,

You will be forgotten like my love for you,

So my dear, my sweet,

Decay.
