Cross RoadsIts early morning,Cross Roads2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The sun holds no redemption for me
It’s such a sweet destruction
Have to be a glutton when our feelings taste right
As I stagger onward,
Into this world that has no shame
The pain is closing down
The sea of souls,
Crowding around me.
I know that reality won’t mind
If I decide to leave my cares behind
Allow me to liberate my mind
For my greatest moment, lived in my lifetime,
Said goodbye to me for the last time just the other night.
I’m running away
Trying to find a place to hide
Too scared to face my everlasting shame
A new horizon,
A look of shame
Was written in clear print
Straight across her face.
My dream will be erased,
And so many things,
Will never be the way they seemed
Like her face, no longer can I read…
Swept away from me as time went on
Her book, her light
Went on that road to the left,
And I go to the right.
So now, that the crossroads tore us apart,
I guess I’ll just sit back and wait for that light to return,
