Across the Pond

Whenever I look across the pond at all that once was, my chest tightens and I feel a heaviness in my throat. I want to be somewhere else. Somewhere with a different view that doesn’t flood my mind with memories of treasures lost and laughter silenced. Time slows when I see them all, and the golden cage tightens around me once more. I can’t fly here, so I remain hidden behind the bars. I am forgotten in my cage.

    Beautiful… Sometimes I see my golden cage all around me where ever I am… Beautiful girls. Few lines but with so much depth

      I imagine that most people feel this way at times, but it doesn’t seem that way from the outside. It’s funny how you can have so many things that look glittery on the surface, but it can be so different from the other side. Sending lots of light and wishes for peace and joy your way my sweet friend. 🙂

    I’ve wanted to be somewhere else since I was five. As it is, I am rarely present. This is why I am trying to learn how to do life, more. WHOA. Too fillysoffical for this hour in the morning. I’m minus caffeine. You write beautifully, as well as funnily. Talented. X

      This comment made my heart smile and I so thank you for that. I always get those stupid “Wherever you go, there you are” fortune cookie messages. Seriously annoying. But… There is more than a little bit of truth in that. I just want to feel like I’m at home, and I think I find it, but then it’s gone again. This particular location has had some situations that would knock anyone on their butt, so I’m confident that this move is the right one. I’m just not confident if it will solve me.
