Over A Course Of Time

I burn my eyes tonight.
I write my mind on papers.
I could be who I am.
I channel what I am.

If you will read me now.
You will know me well.
You will understand me better.
You will smile, you will cry.

There are “once upon a time” struggles.
There are several tragedies unwritten.
Where there we are waiting,
there we are anticipating.

Things happen in one day.
Things we both hate or accept.
We can pretend to love.
We can pretend to hate.

    If we were a book, imagine the stories it would tell. This is what I get from this beautifully written piece. Thanks for sharing.
