Far Away

A cool breeze blows upon your face
While you look at the sunset
Reminiscing of joyful memories
Now buried in the past

Your heart sadly longs for them
But alas it can no longer be
You turn away from the setting sun
To return to the city you scorn

You walk back the same path
That you have been through countless times
The path that does not glitter
The road that you’ve stumbled countless times

Then for a moment, the sky seems to shine
An aurora covers the land where you stand
Is this what is called hope you thought?
Your heart seems to flutter at the feeling

The road that you walk on now glitters
As if it never looked bleak
Taking this chance you ran towards the path
The path that is now slowly crumbling

Alas, the bridge at the far end of the road
has already fallen to the abyss
Taking a deep breath, you made leapt of faith
The stars then began to fall on the world

When you opened your eyes again
You found yourself lying on soft white sheets
Looking outside the window of the isolated room
Rainbow flowers filled the land beyond
With the dream now far away

  1. Oh my god, Raven. This is so Pretty, It’s truly a work of art and at the same time it’s words burrow into the readers soul. I found myself in almost every line,
    *A cool breeze blows upon your face
    While you look at the sunset
    Reminiscing of joyful memories
    Now buried in the past*

    The opening reminds me of everyday coming to a close, as night transcends i look back and remember happy moments of my life, keeping the tainted past out of something that was good and pure.

    *Your heart sadly longs for them
    But alas it can no longer be
    You turn away from the setting sun
    To return to the city you scorn*

    This part is the sad reality that i find myself coming back to current events. Returning to life is not always easy and its full of choices, choices that will impact what happens next. The sad reality is the “Golden Moments” of your life are just a memory, a good dream you wish you could go back to every time you close your eyes. The present is tough, and these are dark times with hate and violence and corruption almost anywhere you go. Only one word describes the present times in my eyes. Chaos.

    *You walk back the same path
    That you have been through countless times
    The path that does not glitter
    The road that you’ve stumbled countless times*

    Life feels like we are drowning in water rather than treading it, it feels as though we are walking in a timeless dimension. As life slips away. Every corner looks the same, every face remains the same, every mistake on a instant replay. There is no color, but instead tints and shades of Black and Grey, walking aimlessly through an endless Frey. You want to stray from your current path, change your life, a fresh start full of color, we daydream of a different life where grass is greener on the other side. The real question that remains to be seen is, is it?

    *Then for a moment, the sky seems to shine
    An aurora covers the land where you stand
    Is this what is called hope you thought?
    Your heart seems to flutter at the feeling*

    This is where something inexplicably and irrevocably amazing happens, it’s everything you could have dreamed of; a change. Someone or something has occurred and made your life perk up, Become more than feeling as it you were in a ethereal world. A shining light, a shred of hope, something has given you reason to change your current life and become something more. Life is unpredictable and cruel in alot of ways, whether there is a such thing as a happily ever after, or its just for the moment, it makes a new “Golden Memory” to last, so when life knocks you back down you can remember the good in your life waiting for a new memory to be made.

    -Sincerely Nele From OS.

    P.S Nice poem Raven (>^_^)>

    Hi Nele! Thank you for leaving a comment! I really appreciate it as well as your compliments. If I remember correctly, I just recently made this poem and I might make another one soon since I already have an idea in my head. Might compose it after accomplishing some much needed tasks first. I hope you get to enjoy reading the other poems that I made and the other content of my blog. Listening to a cool OST/BGM often gets me hyped up which helps in making a new poem. In fact, I made a prose or a short line of a series that I’ve been composing these last few days in Facebook. I’ll probably post some of them here when I get the chance. For the meantime, I am looking forward in reading your next article! Again, thank you very much Nele! <(^_^<)
