i feel you behind my eyes
and then i run from myself
i inhale you
but you run too
what are we running from?
will you let me feel what you’ve become
and never question why…
it’s a chance we need to take
until i know you
don’t lose who you are
save a part for me

Fascinating poem and picture to go with it…enjoyed reading it.
thanks, much. yea i thought the northern lights were like ether in my mind. and nice boat 🙂
I love the title its just beautiful makes think of Pj Harvey White Chalk. We can never escape ourselves better to just accept ourselves
This feels like one of those dreams where you keep running and running, but you can never reach your destination. So hard to fit into words
yes, that’s one way to see it… nice to hear your interpretation..
