Today under a rainy day, needed words of encouragement.
I wanted to feel the cold air against my warm skin.
Nothing about my day seemed to connect.
It's been a while.
Too many things mean a lot to me.
The raising sun.
The clear full moon on a cold midnight.
Can't coupe. Can't really become One.
Nothing resembles the times I used to know.
I have lost the other side of me.
Don't know how bad this is.
Would not like to find out either.
Memories, that's all there is to it.
Like a huge flashback.
Stronger than my cranium, covering my shivery body.
But yet here I am.
Walking on yesterday's strong emotions. I go on.
Day after day.
Just like yesterday.
I saw you standing by the door.
Gazing at the outside world through the thick,clear, and strong glass door.
There you were,like being protected against the current.
Mean while, me and the against the flow battle, to move either backwards or forward.
The constant struggle does not seem to ease.
The chances of becoming One, with the other I would like to find goes on.
I saw you standing by the door, and so it continues.
Here we are against all possibilities.
Standing strong and steady for one another.
Side by side.
From a distance.
We stand between your strong glass door and my strong feelings.
That's what marks the end of a day and the beginning of yet another...
