Perhaps – A Collaboration

This is the third of five collaborations between my friend Michael (https://originaldante.wordpress.com/) and I.  If you haven’t read his talented writing yet, I suggest you do so now! Here is the link to our past collaborations, https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/emptiness-a-collaboration/https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2015/12/11/words-a-collaboration/

It was a pleasure to work with Michael again on this topic, that I feel is very poetic in its nature – “Perhaps”. We both drew our own muse from the word and the following is our collaboration.

Michael is this color

Neha is this color

 

Perhaps

My doormat of a heart

Has been stomped on enough.

 

Perhaps

If I change

Circumstances will follow suit;

Fate covering all those gaps

That have denied me closure.

 

Perhaps

If I look closer

At who I am, and what I do

I won’t have to choose

Between being myself;

And pleasing you.

 

Perhaps

If I kneel down and pray

All will go away.

 

Perhaps 

one day

behind the cloud 
hiding the moon
I will find 
my faded dreams
my long lost tune
of my soul
Perhaps
in the clarity 
of the clear skies
I will stop 
the lies
I say to my heart
