Living In The Past

  • Poetry will always emerge out of the shadows of depression, shining like a star in the scarcity of light.

Living In The Past

These words glint in the morning sunlight,

Catching the sun’s eye.

I cannot see, nor can I hear,

The world seems quite transparent.

The train had passed,

Leaving not a trace

For me to try and follow.

The door still stands wide open,

Inviting me, beckoning me,

 But as I walk through,

Another endless corridor stretches before my eyes.

JACOB. I like the randomness of this poem for sure . It has interesting twists and turns leading the reader through a labyrinth of scenes. ginga

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
