Why can’t I smile and mean it anymore?
Is it because of my friend, dear Misery?
But, I’ve known her now, more than anyone of flesh.
She whispers constantly in my ear.
Of a promise…that if I go with her.
She’ll take my spirit and scatter it amongst the stars,
so I may no longer be alone, in this world of the forgotten.
‘Every morn…I look up for a brighter sun,
to cast away clouds that still pursue me.
Told that time will move them forward,
patience should be a friend.
Though, all I feel as I gaze toward each daily set,
is that I am still losing both.
‘Blind must be the heart,
when there is so much colour…
all that’s seen is grey.’
Raindrops lost in a puddle,
I have already lost track.
A ray of light…
I’m not drowning anymore,
someone has heard my voice.
Soon, I’ll be alive.
“Surrounded by you, my eyes open or closed.
Thinking of you, lost petal, my rose.
Hoping for you, to change what you’ve chose.
Wishing for you, to love me like those.”
All I hear is the wind,
the rain…slaps at me.
My mind has frozen,
but whitecaps still capture.
To the bone and in drench,
I see the window…
where you’re waiting.
