Heavy steel gate shut firmly without seams

Scarred dents and slashes, warped tangled wire 

Opaque wall filtering out light shining through

Rusted lock with the key thrown in my own fire.


Undying fog mixed with smoke residue

Of the desire once lighting darkness to day

How vain I was to cast in all my faith

When fate’s engraved in stone I still try to pray.


An empty amphitheater, a tragedy of one

The hero fighting against his villain within

The verses reach out but none was to hear

Except ghosts of yore my mind’s fabric spins.


When Da Vinci drawing becomes disfigured

And I wish to wipe the paper clean white

Even time can’t let the paint strokes fade away

Too deeply I have let it sink in every night.


Do I not seek light? Do I not want future?

Do you think i bow to the twisting fate?

My mortal strength stands no power to the stars

Hope fully crushed under the melancholic weight.
