[468] The Beginnings That Never Begin

Light trapped in the shadow⁣
or you in my mind⁣
My mind stutters⁣
when it falls in love⁣
Severed connection ⁣
with my soul⁣
Reality shapeshifts ⁣
resembling autumn ⁣leaves
in spring⁣

My feelings for you⁣
are found underwater⁣
drowning under the weight⁣
of my inflated ego⁣
Your spell doesn’t work⁣
in a magic less place⁣
A silent escape ⁣
the only thought in my mind⁣

Who would have thought⁣
silence breaks us both⁣
An iceberg forms ⁣
to paint the sky white⁣
You leave with no hope⁣ as
I arrive in the present’s past⁣
when it’s all too late open up⁣
when all that’s left ⁣
is for the sky to turn red⁣
as I implode
