Alchemy

There is a façade
the public face you see
but what goes on behind the scene
some could even call it
alchemy.

Just the right blend
is all it needs.
A little mix here
little mixing there
a little mischief making
spins into the air.

Some choose to rise above
or,
lend a hand to distant
souls.

Feather-light thoughts
skim o’er naked trees
flesh so vulnerable
as razor-sharp words
cut, then leave their prey
bleeding out from
open wounds.

Above mountains in the way
it never matters
who said or who did what
to whom and,
we don’t need to always
be in control
to be in control.

You see
there is a vast difference
between you and me.

This is the life I wanted
and,
I could never see how anyone
can live their lives in all
those secret spaces.

The pic I found seems to describe my thoughts in some way. Out of focus.
Some thoughts on how many people lead double lives. How different some are behind closed doors.
How a teen loves to be in the middle of her friends falling out so she can do ‘the mix’ between it all then, sit back and watch it all play out and, how I’ve tried to teach her that sooner or later it will all back-fire on her if she doesn’t stop it….but.. do kids listen.. hmm.. I think I have a better chance of talking to the wall….haha.. she’ll learn, probably the hard way, as do we all.
