on the other side of cobblestone streets

to my kindred soul ...i know you are out there somewhere on the other side across cobblestone streets that scorn my feet, like hearts on the pathways and wrong turns of so called love i've been kissed but not by your lips nor with the same passion as the skies at dawn i've been wrapped in the contours of arms much like the bitter winds of autumn's sweeping nights shivering beneath the touches that left me stranded on the journey towards you i hold you in my dreams on the other side of streams where tears trickle over the rocks and the dams hold me back i searched for you beneath the lambent moon through shadows on alleyways always losing sight in the harrows of night i've danced silently with death in silhouettes upon mind's walls always breaking free running away, lost on these sidewalks of chalked thoughts yet sometimes i wonder had i held his hand would he have led me to you in another place another time does fate await our destiny on the other side of life... i still search for you down cobblestone streets through the passages of time as it shifts beneath my feet stranded, alone until we meet.... inside my dreams Written 10/25/2019 Best free verse July-December 2019 Poetry Contest Sponsored by John Hamilton Entered December 8, 2019
