Distant Thoughts

Distant Thoughts 

As I take a walk through the same worn path
I have walked so many times before.

I am aware of the smell of pine and the sound of birds
But they seem in another world.

My mind is on the past as I walk mechanically alone and hurting,
stepping over roots and holes that litter the path.

I know they say that the past is the past,
but my past was supposed to be my future.

The pain is refreshed and gets stronger with each passing day,
time has not cured the ache of separation from love.

I continue to walk and clear my head,
the past will haunt me until the day I am dead.

    Nice write Joshua... Very well-versed lines with epic climax.

    Dear the way, I've always loved the name "Joshua".. strong, chosen to finish the awesome task that was started.. I know how hard it is for you right now, but believe me, keep looking to the future, try to imagine a brighter day, work together with the Creator by thinking positive and if it's His will you will be surprised. Been there before and..I'm not giving up hope. Love, Audrey
