Some days the prose comes easily, and some days, I struggle to put together two words. The inspired works are usually the easiest. They also retain their appeal for longer – or rather, the appeal in my eyes. I wrote this on Helium a little while back and I’m glad to say I still like it. It didn’t rate well on Helium, but then again, it was one out of two…
I was a cold and empty shell,
So far removed from this world where I dwelled.
I passed through life like a ghost in time,
My thoughts and emotions, I never opined.
Making barely a ripple in the water of life,
I kept to myself and stayed away from all strife.
I chose not to live because I was afraid to feel.
So burnt by a past, I could never be healed.
And then you came and changed my world,
Dreams long gone began to unfurl.
You warmed this ice cold heart of mine,
And thawed what had been frozen in time.
You brought me back to life again,
And helped me see it was worth the pain.
I thank you for your certainty,
For you made me believe… in me.
