A River

For so long keeping you from me, were chains that bear my misery. Composed of ash from a bridge I once burned. My mind told me to wait and see. My heart told me it cannot be. My soul told me to close my eyes and leap. I truly hoped that I could swim, in the river of what had always been; not drowning in unrealized memories. Now that the tide has pulled me down, i know you will not let me drown. I stare up watching blue fade to black. I know my world, was inside out. As my last breath leaves, I try to shout; but the darkness quickly swallows all I see. Her eyes are made of evergreen; gazing at something I’ve never seen. On its own time, true love set me free.
