In Another World


When shadows overlap,

they merge to become darker,


That’s what we see, at least.

But what if

in another world,

their merging created a story;

something deep and meaningful.

What if,

even for the briefest of moments,

somewhere out there

something magical happens

when two shadows meet.

So maybe,

just maybe,

in another world,

our short time together

lasted an eternity.

Maybe in some other world

I made your heart race

like you always did mine.

Maybe our love was pure

and deeper than the Mariana Trench.

Maybe I finally made you happy.

Maybe, just maybe

there is a place

where our love was true,

where the words ‘I love you’

made an impact:

made the stars align;

created galaxies;

were felt by every soul in the universe;

and they maybe even

meant something to you.

  3. Sounds like you’re letting that love that’s gone, to take you over, and that’s never a good thing, because it prevents you from moving on with your life, but sometimes, these lost loves lingered on, because we needed them to…

      All of this is true, I’ve realized the same about myself lately. It’s hard to move forward because I’ve been clinging for so long but every day I make progress and I intend to keep going, despite the occasional bumps in the road.


  4. I love the picture choice, it goes very well with what you’re saying.

      That was exactly what I was trying to go for and it means so much that you’ve noticed and appreciated it, thank you!
