[498] Hide From The World

Let me inside⁣⁣⁣
into your raging ⁣⁣⁣
purple dreams⁣⁣⁣
Mirrorless reveries⁣⁣⁣
of your discreet little side you hide⁣⁣⁣
Walk me in when it is⁣⁣⁣
about a rose petal about to fall ⁣⁣⁣
about a moon crescent ⁣⁣caught⁣
in a slipstream of clouds⁣⁣⁣
so you catch your breath ⁣⁣⁣
inside your waning soul⁣⁣⁣
You realise that the world⁣⁣⁣
realises you⁣⁣⁣
but the mist hides⁣⁣⁣
the city you’re from and ⁣⁣⁣
from where you can belong⁣⁣⁣
The roots of you ⁣⁣⁣
severs all connections⁣⁣⁣
to all that you thought you were⁣⁣⁣
The need to be going somewhere⁣⁣⁣
stops you from being ⁣⁣⁣
here, there and everywhere⁣⁣⁣
Intermittent fasting for the heart⁣⁣⁣
to understand what you really need⁣⁣⁣
a little bit of understanding and ⁣⁣⁣
a blinding passion to really breathe⁣⁣⁣
Decency and dignity to those⁣⁣⁣
who deserve and⁣⁣⁣
Beauty and brevity to those⁣⁣⁣
who live unperturbed⁣⁣⁣
Enjoyment in the work you dream⁣⁣⁣
Time stops hurting when you do not care⁣⁣⁣
to bear the fruits or bemoan the lack of it
