Night Sky

Lying here I watch the night sky, wind howling and wailing but never penetrating this dull sense of ache,

The world tells me to be strong, but my heart is pleading for me to break.

Within each fleeting breath, I watch the topaz tears shimmer and fall,

Falling through the darkness,

Falling in to the abyss, the empty cool cavern where young dreams once flourished above it all.

Now I see nothing, I’m paralysed to the core.

Screaming to all manner of strangers to safe this innocent soul, to raise it to the heavens and let it sore.

The journey is tempered, and is long with the jagged ere of doubt

I run to you, I shake the very foundations of your house and beg for you to come out

To face me, to face this unearthly passage of time in my life,

Were the night in endless, pitch black and ferocious ,

Where unruly Gods do not even permit a star to guide me through the strife.

Shamelessly you never here my cries, you batten down the hatches and plead ignorance to my cause.

I’m left wasting in the perilous night,

It is a comfort to know that the darkness of the sky is a blanket to the blood that has been spilled

We would not wish to cause you alarm or fright.

This is why loneliness is embedded in the shadows, to cover up the cracks of life’s that never made it in this world.

All I ask as I bleed from existence, is that my heart be acknowledged it kept so tender and warm,

Though I never could shine and be alive, love was the one forgiving word.
