Before the World IntrudedInspired by Michele Rosenthal's 'Before the World Intruded'
Before the world intruded you would always hold my hand.
Before the night was concluded you'd wrap your arm around me,
You would give me the strength to stand.
Before everything else mattered you'd sing your meadowlark songs.
You would give your best kookaburra chuckle.
You'd look me in the eyes and say "it won't be long".
Before life rudely interrupted we shared a chilly slumber.
Before I had time to realize that's when I had my first muse.
Before I unknowingly bumped into your wings,
Your very beauty stopped my heart from beating.
Before I was always alone. I see the joy the forest brings.
Before you flew away I had, for once, found meaning.
Collab Poem 1Love is hard, or so said the wise
That's what I had, when looking into your eyes
But when I said "Love never dies".
I said it with treason. I knew it was a lie.
It burns me in the inside,
Every word, and every moment we lock eyes.
Because every glance is another regret. I know it will haunt me. I'll never forget.
I'll roll my dice, and move on in life.
I can't stand the judgment. Not knowing when karma strikes thrice.
But with or without you, I will carry on.
and with or without you, I will strive on.
Today is a new day. Today I am reborn.
I was born again. I was blessed by the rain. I will climb that mountain. I will be a saint.
Watching you and the world from above.
I wonder how much evil do you have?
Wonder how much evil do you make?
Wondering how much evil does it take?
