A flower for you, with roses in your smile
A kiss on the lips; you’ve been on my mind for a little while
Often I pass, with little more than a quiver
A pattern stagnant until a single stare was delivered
Belief, reciprocity, perhaps just mutual hopelessness
I never thought another could be broken like this
With all the wishes in the world I’d ask for but a kiss
There you were, here we are, hopelessly together under this falling star
Lost at the bottom of a forgotten wishing well
Bound by the spell of this dried up well in which we fell
But are we hopeless if together we stand?
Are we in despair if comforted by each other’s hand?
Perhaps we’re no different than so many other lost souls
Seeking but a breath in a water filled tank
Darkness turned light– on a single chance to take
Reaching for a reason to believe
Hoping for a smile to relieve
This accepted comatose that came with such ease
A heart screaming for more
A mind silencing this pervasive roar
This may be all I get; this pain it hurts like shit
A hope, a flower, a smile in this increasingly dark hour
What sign of things to come?
A fading empty horizon
A sun no longer rising
Where has the light gone?
This monotony has endured too long.
