Back To The Beginning - Poem by Maya Hanson

I see your eyes
I match your grin
I see your thoughts
not just your skin,
I go back to
the beginning of you.

I look on, helpless
as you start to fall
Never, never, have I
felt so small
I can't fix things, I
can't go back.

All I did was go
back to the beginning.

Your angry eyes
directed at me
You kept secrets hidden,
secrets only you could see
I hang my head in guilt
I don't want your soul to shred.

All I did was go
back to the beginning.

You plead with me
just one more time
My heart is crossed
the stars align
but only in my dreams exists
a place that's beautiful.

I live in fear
behind a cloud
I keep going,
alone in my silver shroud
I wish I'd never gone
back to the beginning.

I leave you hanging
merciless me
If a love exists
don't let me see
I couldn't take
drawing you in again.

Your eyes haunt me
yellow and clear
I take one look
and know that I'm here
and you're just a creature
that I can't control
never at all…

But in summer you shift
someone I can love
A tangle of limbs
a sign from above
that once I went
back to the beginning
and it let you
know me
trust me
love me.
