Traveler of a Different Kind

I have wandered countless miles through her running mind; Ever changing landscape I've been lost in many times. I have felt the scars so deep sleeping on her body; A different kind of sleeping beauty I hope never wakes. I have had her dreams wrapped around me; A long flowing skirt dancing with my movements. I have touched the burning flesh of monsters in her mind; Leaving gaping wounds in every corner they can reach. I have walked through memories so perfect; Blue skies, warming sun, and flowers rising at my feet. I have been burned by her fears so great; Screams thrashing about in my throbbing head. I have loved her smile so bright warming my hopeful heart; Laughter so light and kind like none I've ever heard before. I have seen the darkest corners of her raging mind; Silent battles wreaking havoc on her weary soul. I have held her brightest thoughts gently in my hands; Precious gems so raw and pure waiting to be shined. I have been forced to watch her die a thousands times; Her eyes a cage she cant escape; I have yet to find the key. -ARI
