My Mind Takes Flight... - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

Looking up at the dark starry night
I let go and my mind takes flight
Wondering about life itself
Forgetting all about power and wealth.

Remembering what I had left behind
To get a place in life so high
Seeing how far I've really gone
I have no regrets - except one.

A chance to be free and spontaneous
Till it got in the way of my goals
Which came in my life first
Never knew blessings could be cursed.

But alas, they just brought misery
Success, surprisingly empty
Though great, when I look I find
Blank symbols, victorious but vile.

I never had a chance to explain
It was time to stop playing games
I once thought were unimportant
Until I stopped using my heart.

Too scared to take too many risks
Too afraid to fall into a pit
Did things so utterly stupid
Eyes closed, heart about to bleed.

Staring at the full moon sky tonight
I know we watch the same old stars
I only wish I fully understood
Why I am alone here so far apart.
