the outskirts of us

she thinks about the first time she met him, and how she thought she saw something there behind his eyes

the spark
the soul
the one

but now she looks at him again and sees it was only a mirrored reflection she mistook for a sign.

it was only him-looking-at-her that made the light

and now that he looks away
his world is darkness

but with a blindness even he can't see.

the choice

so i have
to let go
if i stay now
not knowing
if you'll stay with me
there may come a day
i won't be able
to find
my way back

the castle in the sky

sometimes we
miss what's right in front of us.

especially if we're always
straining our eyes

looking towards the horizon.

looking for things we
know will never come.

instead of
reaching out and
holding onto
the ones we
already have.

the mistake

There's a moment when you can't remember how you got here. 
Why you came here at all. Did you make these choices?
So much easier when there's someone else to blame.
But you're standing here, so you must have. And now you can't quite remember how to breathe.

But there's nowhere else to go.
