You didn’t know where you were going
why the clouds always went the same way.
The wind whispered to you in your wanderings,
Whilst your feet dallied at the crossroads.
It fed you stories of battles long gone,
Of Gods and mighty men,
Told you the tales of the humble and the meek.
You fought your own battle
It involved the same heart in your chest
The same ground under your feet.
But you spoke not.
Instead you stood and watched the sun
Rising in the silence.
You feared her radiant light.
She was beautiful and strong in all the ways you were not,
Though you had youth where she had none.
She was your only lover
But she never kissed you goodnight
And she laughs at you
With all her friends
You wonder why they keep going in the same direction.
