The sun hit the right side of my face and burned my cheek,
a tingling on the dried up tear streak that ran down..
I close my eyes and recall all that is nicely vulnerable within me.
And as I open, I see a reflection of it all around me.
And we’d walk..
Surpassing the waves that drown the existence behind me.
No friends, nor acquaintances. No lovers, partners;
No blood to share with anyone around me, either.
yes, most importantly; no more family.
I extinguished all fleeting hopes of suppressing the fear of loneliness within me.
For the more I seek, the deeper the hole would surly get.
I do want to see what it is like to be whole.. rather than dream of all that I might be feeling someday.
Unadulterated faith, love?
If it can dwell within me; locked away or not, with that knowledge I will wield my will to find it all around me, this time.
rather than mere projections.
