Sorrow



                     Image provided by Google

An engulfing sadness
Consumes the core
These days – nights
Leaves my existence
In a state of unrest

Restless thoughts
In flashback fashion
Leaves me breathless
Exhausted to extension
On a quest for the light

The warmth of the sun
Brightening these days
Lost amid the darkness
Roaming ceaselessly
Grasping onto faith

I gaze upon the stars
Searching for a clue
Listening to whispers
Of the nights calling
Entranced by the moon

I fall back within silence
Wishing upon a star
To bring me home anew
Seeking solace unto soul
Awakening all that resides

As the heart beckons
For the barer of the key
Opening the pathway
Where happiness reigns
In the arms of one love

Capture this notion
Of ecstasy – true bliss
Once partaken – divine
Transcending barriers
No other can surrogate
