If You Listen Hard Enough

I’ve traveled to faraway places in the furthest reaches of my mind

Imagination is the only thing that suffice in this wasteland of excess

I am the wanderer who’s out alone in the desert

With only the stars to guide him

 

My inner voice has shouted for an answer to all these questions

These foreboding thoughts that follow me wherever I go but

In the silence of the night all I got was stillness

 

Colors evaporate and swirled around me

If only I could see these auras I would have a better judgement

I could see through walls where people hide themselves behind

 

My sight, my eyes

Crystal clear live pictures, not even the best camera can compare

 

To live in a world without colors

Is to live in a world without sun

Just eternal darkness

 

My heart, oh my fragile heart

 

Some days you are porcelain, so vulnerable

Some days you are the fortress that not even the strongest army could enter

My eyes form tears when you are broken

 

I trust you more than I trust my mind

You are surrounded, my heart

 but

 

Intuition would guide me every step of the way

 

Ears ,oh my ears

If you listen hard enough to the beats of my heart

You would know that some things

Are better left alone

 

If I don’t listen hard enough to

Every whisper and to every silent pleading

Then

True enough I am the fool

 Walking blind

 

The End
