Trees and Leaves by Me
I think the problem was that I thought I didn't care.
That in roaring drunkenness I set flame to thoughts.
I told the world I didn't want to be restrained anymore,
And I thought you had laced me in chains of eternity.
But it wasn't you, I had forsaken myself to forever.
Because when I unbound myself you became wild.
Straddling the autumn wind like little withered leaves.
And I, I was a tree deeply rooted to soiled memories.
I can’t change my stubbornness as it is planted,
unless I shaped the earth around me-in all its pieces.
I think the molding is enough to change the world.
Because they never thought a tree could move.
And in this stubbornness you will finally see,
I wished to love the lively leaves surrounding me.
You, wished to cling to anything that would nurture.
You wanted protection and compassion from
But I, demanded a love unconditional-as it laid in another.
So I must find new leaves in the air to mother.
I never wanted to watch you shrivel up in loneliness.
But I couldn't bear seeing a purpose if there was no forever.
Because you just want something to cling on and share no
I did what I had to and set myself free.
You wanted roots and limbs to prosper and give you life.
While I was in search of leaves to bond in lifetimes.
And damn may I admit the truth to you darling?
I was hoping you had felt the same.
