*Do You Remember?*

Do you remember?

There were days when life seemed to play cruel games
in the whirl of confusion testing our fears
experimenting with our patience
laughing into our scared faces
painted with the dread

This love grown to the point beyond all shallowness
became a battle
It made us warriors
Our reflections in the legible mirror of hope

This love has revealed its true colours a long time ago
yet felt anxiety
helplessness
unable to travel the distance

Do you remember?

It felt like standing outside the window
in cold
just beholding the warmth of the flames
wanting to come in
desperately in vain
while time painfully leaked
dropping through the imaginary fingers of endurance
so unmerciful to our souls
smothering us like a tormentor
along our misty road

The nasty stink of hate boiled to death
yet we lifted above it
in try to find a pleasent scent of light
in try to gather the strength

We learned the patience in an awaiting for the moment
when the right word spoken freed our wings
no longer chained with the cold steel of the unbearable distance

It brought the peace over my restless heart

And now
you are the only reason it still keeps beating on
