Hope

worlds of wonders wait to be discovered
caught in spider’s webs of memory threads
they die thousand deaths.
secret of loneliness.

a nameless sattelite orbits my life
again and again.
no face, just colour.
we are talking with each other.
but our words are full of silence.

buried in the tombs of time
lies our last hope for redemption;
future past present -
all becomes one, only if
we believe in our dreams.

    I confuse most people with my loose tongue. I meant that when I first saw your art it was visual. I did not know you wrote until I saw these writings. I come back to this one because sometimes I remember it and re read it and I guess I should not leave yet another comment but there it is. Sorry for the confusion. It is genetic and can bring me much trouble. LOL

  • lol. well, don’t mind confusing me. i was born confused. something we have in common (i’m not so sure about the loose tongue, though…)
    :oD

    I really love the words.

  • thank you so much, susan! :o) ♥
    at first i was unsure about the translation, because in german it reads much more fluently, of course. but i’m really glad that these words work quite well in english too…!

    future past presend -
    all becomes one, only if
    we believe in our dreams. ABSOLUTELY…..love this!

  • thank you for this kind comment, shyll… truly appreciated!! :o) ♥
    p.s. but … oops. i mistyped “present”. i don’t care normally – but in a poem it does matter. and i’ve seen it just yet … what a shame. :oP

    this is incredible B!!!
    my favourite part is the end “only if
    we believe in our dreams”

    we don’t believe in them enough
    You should write more…you’re really good at this♥
