I will never pass this way again
Forced to let go, like losing a friend
With such simple dreams, through gazing eyes
I ignored reality’s bite, while cuddling lies
The stark shades of pain render me blind
The damage done is expressly unkind
Where do lost souls go to rejuvenate?
My conquering spirit has been removed of late
All I see are mountains surrounding me
Shellshocked and landlocked by imposed finality
My heart is buried beneath the rubble’s heap
No proper resting place where its beat can sleep
No relief for the weary who hesitate
No compromise with forced hands of fate
I stare into the sun, defiant of its light
So sure it only burns like Icarus’s flight
Whose hand can restore me to former glory?
Perhaps a happy ending is not in my story
I might require rewiring of my brain
Or a lobotomy, to feign that love is sane
I shall wander and wonder if life is real
Who holds my cards, and who shuffles the deal?
I only wish I did not feel pain’s grip
Walking the plank, on a sad sinking ship
