This Time Around{0}

Life and death.  The normal course of action most of us have to take.  Memories of a long lost so many years have past us by dear friend who let life get the best of him and chose another way.  Taking your own life is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. There is always another way.

Even when you’re happy you can have moments of sadness. Even when everything goes your way you can hope for something more. Even when you know to move on you remember. Even if it’s all okay it can still hurt. Even in your deepest moments of clarity you can still be confused. Even if you’re not sure, you should keep your chin up. Eventually this to shall pass.

Always in touch with my dark side and the wonderment of a child I sometimes give in to the romantic notion of how life can take your breath away. Getting into a space of where Alice in Wonderland meets Oscar Wilde’s memories and the flow of consciousness will hopefully set us free.

Sometimes we fall but we get back up. Sometimes we want to hold on but the world moves to fast.  Let go.  Life promises to catch you.  Sometimes the Universe just wants us to step out of our shell and experience life and sometimes a little poetry babble helps you keep going.

I wish that I could tell you that I didn’t want your kiss.

I wish there was a way for me to make a different wish.

If only time could follow through when it set you in my sights.

If only I had turned away and back into the night.

I don’t know if you’ll ever get this message I am sending.

Some things weren’t meant to have a happily ever ending.

In a different time and a different place.

Maybe in my dreams I’ll get to see your face.

Clocks don’t go backwards so that part makes sense.

But why can’t time go backwards just this once.
