Poetic Ramblings

The Walk
Copyright 2011 Heather Powers
I see you in my dreams.
A smattering of energy
Consuming me
A flicker here, a flicker there
Tantalizing me
The could have and might have been
Appear before me provocatively
Misspent youth haunting my thoughts
Regrets follow me silently.
A lighted path appears before me
Encouraging freedom
Thought patterns changing as
The world moves on
A doorway waits invitingly
My steps are small
Time slows down
Clock hands paused.
Knowledge flows in
Clock hands begin again
Another step finished
Shadows edge close
Wanting for energy
To wane.
Light beckons and
Fills my being
Shadows move back
But wait in silence
The walk continues.
