Things that can’t be undone…

(Just sitting at work thinking about the year coming so quickly to a close and dwelling on things I will probably never forget. Wrote this based on ideas about how sometimes we think we’re saving someone when we really might be throwing them farther into the fire. It’s not really anything, just a bit of mind-dumping, but feel free to comment if you like.)

I open my mouth to let the air escape, and rushing from my lips, licking off my tongue, are sounds not my own.

Your eyes are searching, imploring skyward for reprieve, dark and hollow things that no longer see and I am at your shoulder, my hand outstretched toward you but you are too far away to reach.

I am not a kind and merciful spirit sent to lift you up to siren’s sweet symphony nor drag you down to brimstone’s brazen embrace. I am not your salvation and I will not grant you the release you seek. I am instead your prison warden, borne here by fate’s fleeting grace, to tighten your bonds.

If you ever loved me, now is the time to let it go.

"Freedom isn't just a word, but a way of life.."

Serendipity

Was I born a masochist or did society make me this way? I demand unconditional love and complete freedom. That is why I am terrible.
