A sorrow misunderstood,
Incomprehensible,
My thoughts pouring out
Drowning all logic
In woes that wind around
My heart, my soul;
A heavy burden that sinks me
As the sun rises
Each and every day – a new sigh,
The same old sigh
Corrupts the brightness
And my lonesome colours
Dull my words, my pace
Like water turning stagnant.
 
Eyes open, the world hurts,
Eyes close, thoughts come
Alive in forms of angels, magic
And repetitive dreams –
The numbing throb of hearts
Racing with winds and a smile,
The blink of an eye that captures
Hidden facts and half truths
Come only in a split second
Before vanishing or
Transforming into
A lamp, a cloud, a prince
Offering what they can
To ease all the ache.
And yet the warm sunlight
Burns them all like acid
Melting metal fast and smoking,
Proud of the mocking deed;
And eyes open, hurt at the sights…
Of worlds changing yet stagnant –
The numbing stare, the quiet strain
Of hands held together,
A curse is silently
Murmured in the crisp air,
A frown, a pout, and pursed
Lips for toleration and endurance;
Await the time when the eyes
Close only to open once more.
