Hindsight (song)

by Maher   Jan 2, 2019


The sky, the moon
and ocean sands that meet the blue
in a wave - a wave goodbye.
Through cliffs and dunes;
winds like rain bring salty dew
on days - on days so tired.

I fall:
I swear the sky will miss me
as I fall,
I swear the ground will kiss me,
unlike you.

Things break away;
shadows play in scarlet rays
as they dream - dream like fools.
It's black this way,
like a preacher losing hope in faith
and it stings - it stings so good.

I fall:
I swear the sky will greet me
as I fall,
I'll love the ground beneath me,
more than you.

Some days see snow
while rivers fight the cold.
Some days seem warm,
yet water hides the mold.
With time, the days will pass
until we're just a little old;
pushed to find our way back to the cold.

I fall:
I swear the sky will miss me
as I fall,
I swear the ground will kiss me,
as I fall,
I feel the old seduce me
and I fall
into the cold that screwed me,
just like you.

    Mather, I could hear the music see the sea waves delivering the salt into those wounds on your exposed raw heart.
    Take it easy, man.

    Maher, always wonderful to read your pieces. This is chilling to think of how an ended relationship can be, cold, hard, and hurtful. Well done-

    That last stanza not only summed up the emotion for me. "Into the cold that screwed me", chills.
