Before and After

Mon, 07/09/2018 - 15:06 -- .emma


to this body, this place, this time 

doomed to live this day 

over and over again 


a wave crashes on to shore 

steady as the old grandfather clock 

the path worn down to dust 


what other worlds I dream 

creatures unseen 

people unheard 

places untouched 


your words bring me there 

I will live a thousand lives 

hold countless hearts in my heart 

I will walk the roads 

paved in your mind 


new understanding 

new point of view 

new me and new you 

thank you
