lmb_words_poetry_hidden under the dust

do you still know how that smile looked
before it jumped off your face
and ran away to hide in a dark corner
behind your bookshelf
and your desk full of work and sorrows?

do you still know how the world felt
before your life chose to change
to stop walking the old paths
and the abandoned roads
you had been walking all the time?

do you still know how your eyes gleamed
full of happiness and contentedness
back then when everything was alright
when you did not know about me
and about who i am or what i feel?

do you feel now how cold that wall is
that you built up inside of you
and around your every thought
how hard, how unbreakable,
how useless it is?
