In between the lines

I had one task, to store everything I could in one place.

I had one task, to take my sorrow, joy, chaos and peace,

To merge all the expectations and disappointments just for one chance…

The chance that time could preserve them, people could come across them,

The generations after me could learn from them.

I had one task, to store everything I could in one place,

So I placed them all in you, and for every ray I gave you,

You gave me a spot of darkness.

You drew the curtain until I had to take a bow.

I had one task, to take my sorrow, joy, chaos and peace,

So, I reached out for the one thing I thought I could control: words.

I lined them up, one after the other until they formed a steady stream that drained into a sea of memories.

I had one task to create magic and oh, how I struggled, nights without sleep, nights where other’s echoes of how I was to assemble these words haunted me…until one day I decided to let them be…and that was when it took a life of its own.

I had one task and my Love, I found you a haven, a place where only you could reside in, and it’s in between the lines.
