Yesterdays Tomorrow

by WakingFreedom   May 10, 2010

It was yesterdays tomorrow that became today
and I realized that I won't be the same again.
I became someone else when the moon hid its colors
and I cried for myself as death took over the world.
A darkened love forbade the ruling of wondering souls
And they became withered and tattered as they fell asleep.
Into the ground they sunk and shattered, fading away
Nothingness blanketing their dreams and destinies.
And it was today's tomorrow that became yesterday
That I was the same breath as the one beside me.
Bleeding the same blood and watching the same star
Feeling the same love and catching the same firefly.
And now the color in the Red Rose has became a shadow
Casting long and sorrowful wishes as our sun declines.
Changing beauty into agony as heartbreak falls into place
Droplets of paper floating in the air as tearful rains
catching only the eye of the beholder that thought it beautiful
Shedding the only sight he had left, blinding him into oblivion.
It was yesterdays today that became tomorrow
That the world floated silently in a galaxy of what-ifs.
Shining its glory and freedom as we all suffered inside it
Falling into a state of catastrophic evolution
Creating an atmosphere of constant tears and fear
Dreaming of longing wants and needs and feelings
Nothing comes to heart, nothing comes to mind
just a faded memory of a yesterdays tomorrow that became today.
