Alda Wind(with Illustration)

I wanna fly
so bad it hurts
deep in the place in my stomach
where my soul tells my heart to remain
unsatisfied.

I wanna break
every glass pane in the world
so bad it hurts me in my veins
where I imprison pain
so bad I wanna let it break loose
and be so incredibly free
so finally
so bad I can’t even remember the meaning
of my own fragility.

I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
till they popped and shattered
all sound and its sensibility.

Are We Now Strangers?

We used to cling to each other desperately
holding on like we could together
stop gravity

But
now the world has fallen from we above
crying out the challenge of the stars
come sing the song of light and distance
come dance the dance of solitude
These great burning masses reaching out
launching us on disparate celestial orbits
so far from each other
that I cannot see you anymore
at all

So tell me ten thousand years from now
when these waves finally pass through enough space and time
to reach you distorted and constricted
stretched some afraid and some conflicted
do we even know each other anymore?

Are we long lost of love or misunderstanding or presumption
are we now strangers

because it has been so long
I can not tell the difference between
the true shadow of you and the imaginary friend I call by the same name
not anymore

Sometimes I see purple asteroids and mistake them for you
And if I saw you now I know you would not appear
as you did when we knew each other and destroyed each other
and found and tried and made each other
as if I could still remember what you looked like then
anyway

So long so far
I do not know you
I do not know you at all

Soul

O you of Light, O you of Dark
you of heat; you of cold
heart;  Soul

green-the-rain

Lost in time, lost in your art,
found alive, found in your heart;
it’s an asylum;
bring the rain, bring your doubt,
bring the words of the insane and the secrets they’re about.

I’ll meet you, Midnight.

I’ll meet you, Midnight;
_______in the folds of that starry glow
I’ll escape from that light,
_______AND the despair that it shows
Sometime.


Time

What are these roars and shakes of mane, these ravages of time that tear at me so insistently;
this breaking wall, this obscurity?
I defy them all, and spit on their mystery.

The rain that still forever pours the same, the patent that belies fair immortality;
I challenge to a fatal game, a contest to try bare monotony
Sing my soul, and read your fate
in whispers of wind’s call,
Lose yourself and your selfish weight;
play among the stars.


I bet you still fear death

I bet you still fear death
Like you’ve still got something left to lose
But the collision is over now
and all that’s left is star dust
And I’ll admit it,
it was exciting while it lasted
Each crash and explosion left
new and interesting scars

But it’s been dawn for hours now
And you still can’t see the sun
You’ve gone so far out
This time.
