Into the Void, Act I: Fall Apart, Chapter 1 - Riding the Dare-kNot



(Don't be afraid to let it show
What you keep hidden,
Everybody already knows)
You don't have to hide
The want that I see
There in your eyes
Boring right into me
I realize
That it's hard to free
A love that's kept so
Cautiously.
We don't always see
Eye to eye
But please believe
That I'm gonna try
To understand
The reason why
You always want to walk
When I just want to fly.

Let's go.
But inevitably
Time s l o w s d o w n t o a c r a w l ,
U n d e r m i n i n g a l l
O f m y b e s t a t t e m p t s t o
Speed up the tempo!
Let's go for it.
Go big or go home.

Let's take a chance,
Put it all on the line,
That from this dance
Will come tonight
A true romance
For all of our lives.
Take a running start
Into a leap
Dive headfirst
Into the deep
Dark warm abyss
Of crimson tide
And those we'll miss
We'll cast aside
For with this kiss
We'll strive to hold
What fortune favors
Only for the bold.
The taste that stays
Within our tongues
Will hold us there
Until kingdom come.

Let's go.
But inevitably
Time s l o w s d o w n t o a c r a w l ,
U n d e r m i n i n g a l l
O f m y b e s t a t t e m p t s t o
Speed up the tempo!

Or if you'd rather
Stay here forever,
I'll make time s t a n d s t i l l l l l l
When we are together.
Stop the clock,
Hold back the sands of the hourglass,
And s t a y h e r e w i t h y o u i n p e r p e t u i t y y y y y -

el_cazador_verde Claim this poet

I am a university student from Texas, and a bit of a closet-poet. Perhaps I should keep it in the closet, but I am interested in getting feedback on some of my poetry. Let me know what you think! I used to write a lot of poetry when I was a little kid, but eventually lost interest as I got older. I started writing poetry again as a form of art-therapy during a really hard time in my life. I like to try to experiment with different styles and strange metaphors. Understandably, this can make some of my poetry less accessible at times, but occasionally I feel like it pays off. more…
