Gale force winds blow the trees
I’m surrounded by the sounds of gods
The river runs swift and the white caps rise quickly
Neither the Wind or the River hold on
My heart is a collection of memories
Both good and bad
Drifting in and out of love it survives sorted forms of alienation from streams of endless heartbreaks
The soft music of birds play softly in the background from the forest while the soft unheard footsteps of insects cascade drumbeats only they and Ophelia hear
Drowning deep in a shallow river
Ophelia’s madness was understood to no one but her
Her burden of unrequited love was too deep
Unlike the Wind and River she couldn’t let go of her broken heart and shattered dreams
The sun will rise tomorrow without her
A leaf floats aimlessly down the river with no direction and no fear
It doesn’t care where it’s going or where it’s been
Why won’t my heart and soul flow as freely?
Why can’t my heart let go of the one who hurts me?
It’s raining now
Light and cool
I can cry
The rain will hide my sadness
I grow so tired of hiding
The earth doesn’t judge me, but it does bare as my witness
My eternal guardian
I can see her drifting from my dreams
Standing in her white dress on the side of the river she calls out to me
The Wind and River carry her voice away
Why can’t they carry away my heart?
Why can’t she?
May the cold bitter sting of life rest in your heart any longer
