Deluge

I wish I could refind myself
And be the person I used to be
When I used to be.
I wish all these moments, so fleeting
Would pause and rewind
To those moments
Not so filled with yesterday
Because today is so filled with now and tomorrow
Us holding on to frail tendrils of hope
With our dreams and our love raging
Below, a turmoil deluge
Allconsuming, a destruction
Alleviating.
I wish I could be the person
I was when I wished
For this tomorrow.

    Love these lines. Made me pause and re-read them and reflect upon their meaning. A brilliant manipulation of time - something like glimpsing an entire life in a moment.

  2. The lines Enigma mentioned, had similar effects on me.

    I don't quite know how to describe how much and what this means to me, but I wished for a tomorrow and when I got there I wasn't quite me anymore. So I had to let go of my tomorrow :)
