Missing days and months back to you

Boy runs away, it’s his turn to leave.
Not sure where to go, what move to make next.
He continues,
going away from you.

Running from truth, running from fear, he does not stop to listen
No hesitations… not one thought.
Away he goes.

He feels nothing,
his body is numb.
The world stops around him as he runs by, not noticing all the greatness around him.

He does not understand that things move forward even when you stop looking.
The world cannot pause for one to catch up to life.

It’s all changing,
There’s no way to reverse. He can’t go back.

On and on he goes,
as hours mesh into days, weeks just a blur of colors that he passes by.

Until one day he finally wakes up and realizes his faults.
he was running away from what should have been.

Tracing back his steps, he gets lost along the way searching for the thing he feared the most.
The thing his heart now aches for.

He didn’t know it was you.
He did not see you standing there till now.
He did not look closely enough.

Time has a funny way of bringing us back together,
in a huge jigsaw puzzle.
Everyone searching for the right piece.
The missing piece.

But do not worry...some how the puzzle transforms into a masterpiece of life.

I liked the poem.

Regarding your novel and your writer's block, when I get stuck I try to visualize the story as though it were a movie playing out before my eyes. When I can do that, then I can write down what I see in my mind's eye, and it becomes even more vivid.

Yes, visualizing your writing is a great tool, I do it often... really helps your ideas come to life. Thanks for you comment :)
