\\\\\\\"Time brings all things to life, in that I trust it so.\\\\\\\" ~ Willie Stark

When the tides change
I’ll be free
to drown among my people
in the ancient lands of nowhere
nowhere you would go
with a head upon my hat
and feet upon my shoes
it’s time to go inside
to survive
the cold of the air conditioning
in my room it’s harsh living
with the lights turned off
no one makes a sound
except the pitter patter of my soul
across the aluminum roof of my mind
like raindrops in your eye
all you are is a blurred image
thoughts once clear
are now hard to see
I have to retrieve my telescope
just to see you
still leaves me empty inside
’cause I think it’s my fault
that I have no idea
but I don’t know what to think
or where to begin
so I just sit and wait
for the tide to come in.

If you love something, then let it go,
If it comes back, it's yours forever,
If it leaves you, then it was never meant to be.

this is really nice! i like the idea itself, of course, but the way you wrote it was very pretty. i especially like the part with the air and the room.

if life was given two choices, to become a writer or a character, I will choose to become a writer.
I have the power to decide what my life should be.

when i go through it once, i don't really get it.

after reading it again, i understand just how beautiful it means. love it
