Slip Away

image from weheartit
2/13/12
I stepped into another world today
In which I found you
Amid the gray depths of my soul
And stayed awhile next to your shadow


I left the color and solidity
For the coolness of murky waters
Just for a chance to hold your hand
Even if we're nothing but shadows

oh the shadows of love... we're always wishing they could be the real thing.

A beautiful poem Laura. <3

Love makes us leave our comfort zones and go towards the murky and elusive.Short and sad in a way. The last line has deep impact.

Beautifully penned. Poignant and sad.

Reading this was a 'Killing me Softly' experience. Beautiful and confronting.

This is a wonderful poem. It did let beat my heart a bit faster.

It is a loving feeling, Laura! I could feel it "amidst the gray depths of my soul, and stayed awhile next to your shadow" A feeling of wanting to be near!
