Like Water

Quit, Stop! You’re twisting my arm!
I’m sorry I cannot love you, be your morning star
The world is hurt and imbalanced and so are we
I’ve made peace with my demons as yours run free
Fate has spoken as to why we can’t be together
My heart is too soft for your wild indiscretions
I was looking for a soul, while you searched for a playmate
Playing in the garden of the Universe unaware of us not being on the same page
I had to force myself to let you go! And you kept pulling me back
Afraid of growing, afraid to change, afraid of being
There‘s lots to learn while we are still living
My growth has surpassed yours and I couldn’t wait
Time lingers for no one and I had to make an escape
But still you wished to hound me even though you knew this to be true!
You thought I was like the wind, rushed and for everyone
When I am like water, free flowing, calm until provoked
So you see, you and I cannot be
Release me for someone else whose able to know my worth and warmth
Maybe once you’ve sprung from the embers of an enlightening solace, I’ll be there
Free flowing, calm like water.

My name is Tricia Barnes born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I currently live in Los Angeles to follow my dream in writing. My first love is for the world of novels, however, I have taken keen interest on blogging every week about my journey of following my dreams. I discuss matters pertaining to mental, physical, emotional and spiritual experiences of attracting my desires whilst living in "Lost" Angeles ( what I like to call it). I've been writing for as long as I can remember and I honestly can't see my life doing anything else. Except traveling. But, I'll be writing while a crepe in Paris.
