Our Paradise - Poem by Ashley Fortin

I have gone to you before I have left nothing of trace. Only scares.
You and I have travelled painfuly through the darknes to find us there.
We had met at once in one instant. Too fast. Sent our hopes lost.
What was it we had thought of?
That made it so clear, so deeply indestinct. Hidden in ourselves.
Though we lived like that for long we soon realized we could not be without it... like a narcotic. To strong. We longed for it. To have our minds writhe in feelings, no numbness... to familiar. No, we longed for the feeling only we, together, could feel.
What was it we felt?
Never had enough, never had a little. Never in clear thought to examine what it was we loved of it. What made it ours. I remember intoxication... never clear. I remember the dry desert like thoughts, feelings and dreams that came with it every time you were not here. Not with me... here was lost. Here was only ours. But it was delicate. Too delicate, every time we would speak... our words to bleak. Too much truth.
You knew what would happen... forever does not exist. Our thoughts collide. They no longer swim in feeling. They are forever broken. Scared from what we had, and what we lost. Our thoughts against our paradise. We knew the truth was in our deepest thoughts... so hidden even we could not see them. It was to late.
They no longer breath the fragrance that once brought our spirits high. Eyes closed. No matter. I could see your face anyways. There... that was the pain. It would grip me. Every dream. Every dream now a nightmare. Neither of us would sleep soundly again. Laying awake. Miles apart.
Never to reach eachother again. Never to reach paradise again. Ours was gone. Our paradise... forever lost.
