Paths

e9681f1dbe504037e14748407e26af13

Sometimes the steps, the imagined worlds, the seconds crumble in just one quick moment
Sometimes the space disappears, our breath is not even felt, our smile remains an abyss within
Sometimes our paths collide in dark, in shallow moves, and fake touches of a skin that can’t allow our souls to embrace a truth
Sometimes we walk away when in fact we scream for time to stay
Sometimes we are forced to accept realities in which we get lost
Sometimes we stop in the middle of our thoughts just to realize we even forgot sensations, smells we once tried to close in a memory box
Sometimes we drag along so many choices that we block at the edge of our heart and then try not to return
Sometimes we struggle to swim backwards, but the ocean is filled with all the rocks we used to build a mountain from
Sometimes we feel the night is near, the moon wanting to seal a road we crossed with one more knot.

  3. Everything about this poem is beautiful, the image and the words are the stuff of dreams. I particularly like this line: “Sometimes we walk away when in fact we scream for time to stay”. I can identify with that.
