Untouchable

I am untouchable

Surrounded by the black gates

Unsure of which to open

“Let the people in!”

Cries my heart

Yet I am lost…

Separated and gone

 

Write my name in the water

Watch it disappear

Before your feet

Unreachable

 

Sun rays reach you

Sparkling like a million little stars

Snowflakes glittering around you

 

Me?

Stuck in the mud

Dead leaves twirl to the ground

Dead flowers lay in their beds

 

My life is an hourglass

Surrounded by flame

Unreachable

 

Reach for the rewind

Flip to the front of the book

The track skips

The pages are stuck

 

Use my words

Rewrite my history

Pick up the pen

Try to start again

 

It doesn’t matter how hard you try -

 

No going back…

No.

Going.

Back.
