Imagined Boundaries

When we fear the world we live in, we fear exploration.

Freedom is lost in the reliance on a single nation.

When we fear the world we live in, we fear our own ability.

Boundaries, borders, and baggage promise artificial stability.

When we fear the world we live in, we fear our own neighbor. 

Safety isn't earned from the signatures on a paper.

When we fear the world we live in, we fear our own mind.

For, man created fear, and fear controls our time.

When we fear the world we live in, we lose our control to feel.

For freedom of feeling, is the only thing that's real.

Eyes

His eyes were brown, mine were blue. 

His lips were soft, mine were too. 

The moment we touched, that’s when I knew. 

This feeling was inevitable, divine, and incredible. 

Something about the rush, I knew, could never be regrettable. 

I was lost in our thoughts, the ones that intertwined. 

It was easy to love, when we could read each other’s minds. 

A glance was all it took, to feel more than just sensation. 

I felt the weight of the world, the meaning behind creation. 

I knew he felt it too, his eyes told me so. 

I was finally alive; I never could let this go. 

But what happens when time doesn’t stop, and our feelings alter our decisions. 

When distractions tease our thoughts and we’re scared of the world we live in. 

We always had each other, but I wanted something more. 

Something to give me answers, my mind was different than before. 

We went our separate paths, one chosen and one made. 

I don’t know why you waited; I don’t know why I was afraid.

We’re strangers now, though I see you every day. 

I can still feel your thoughts, the ones you send my way. 

Our love is in disguise,

but your eyes still don’t tell lies.

Silence

What if time stopped, and we met in the silence. 

Would the chemistry still be there? Something beyond science. 

Our love has been forgotten, decided by our past. 

I’ve been looking for something more, something that will last. 

I’ve searched the whole world, the one inside my mind. 

If I let you back inside, would you be scared of what to find?  

There was a time when we were young, yet we knew more than we know now. 

We knew how to be, in the moments that we found. 

The connection has not been lost; our thoughts are still in sync. 

You know how I feel, and I know how you think. 

I don’t believe in reliving the past, but I do believe in love. 

We're miles apart on the ground, but the future exists above. 

This feeling hasn’t gone away, that’s how I know it’s real. 

I would ask you for a reaction, but I already know how you feel.
