A Stranger's Whisper

January 12, 2011

When one bad thing happens,
it's human nature for another to follow,
and another to follow that one.

And you become suffocated,
like someone is holding a pillow over your head,
and you just want to scream,
but you're in a church or a library.

Then you try to grip the world,
but a cloud of blue smoke,
escapes your grip.

And you are left,
where those innocent moments went,
and which table those peaceful times are hiding under.

But a stranger's whisper,
reaches your ears,
and smiles fill your legs

I wrote this during a very hard time in my life and as i wrote it all the emotions seemed to bubble up inside me and were released. It was such a beautiful feeling.
