Hanging on a String by Nomar Knight

Hanging on String
By Nomar Knight

My life is hanging on a string
Hot days ignite fever
Cold nights stalking dreams
Your face a fading ghost
Hidden behind walls of reality

My love is hanging on a string
This emptiness pushes to escape
If I bleed it will be the essence of you
Precarious twirl of love's chance
Constant battles against darkness

My heart is hanging on a string
Exposed for all to see
Ignited by fear and isolation
Sprung forth by hope and dreams
Erratic beats pound senseless tears

My soul is hanging on a string
A quiet place disturbed by time
Wondering of what could be
A maze of choices sing inside
Praying one day we'll be free

  4. Keep on writing and don't let go. Know the feeling of putting yourself out there to someone and realizing perhaps a tenuous connection——can be painful. "Erratic beats pound senseless tears" Great line. Nice One Shot, Nomar.
