Skates N Fate

Skateboards and roller skates
riding waves in days to motion

The wheels to clocks
turning us back to when
we were young growing up,
racing the wind,
raised in sunny days
under sun rays

Her on roller skates

Me surfing a skateboard

One foot pushing forward
away from boredom
us sort of meeting in the middle

Crashing skates creating scars
making the stars fall

Skateboards and roller skates
rolling, controlling the world

Wheels stealing loneliness

I'd do tricks on my board
showing off

You'd challenge me to
ride your skates but,
I'd always lose my balance

Similar to how I feel now
falling in love

Skateboards and roller skates
envisioning our past

Thank God for the fact that
we had to crash into one another
in a total collision of our hearts

Riding skates to escape the universe...
