Playing with Perspective :)

So yesterday I decided to try something different that I haven’t done in years. I wrote from a friend’s Point of View. I took what I know about his situation & put his thoughts into my own words. He shall remain anonymous, but here is the result:

 

4.5 years down the drain

Was it wasted or was it just insane?

People can pry, but they’ll never know why

It was my own decision to fly

 

We met at night

Lived in the dark, not the light

But we grew apart

& now I get a fresh start

 

I may not know how

But I’ll find my own way

& I’m not gonna listen

To what others have to say

 

It’s not their job

To decide my fate

I’m a grown man

& that’s something I hate

 

I make my own tracks

& I spin ’em in the club

I drop hints for the girl

That I low key love

 

Smoke ’til no one

Can see my green eyes

So when she saw them

She was so surprised

 

Stay up every night

To watch the sun rise

& socialize with strangers

I don’t even recognize

You know when you wink, it throws my breath out of sync

You look so beautiful sleeping there, as I run my fingers through your thick curly hair.

Your deep rhythmic breathing, while you’re lying there dreaming.

Now my favorite blanket smells like you, & nothing has ever smelled sweeter, that is true.

My head upon your chest is the only place I find rest.

Buried in your arms, I’m free from all harm.

The way you kiss & hug me, makes me feel like you love me.

With our legs intertwined, not a thought crosses my mind, except for how much I love you.

I never felt safer than when I was with you, but then you pushed me away & I realized it wasn’t true.
