Is only ever pleasant
In my eyes, closed when the daylight shines.
I do not wish to see
Smiles that pass through the roads,
For I am faded.
I am the mind that has battled the heart,
The fear that has battled fate,
I have locked the expression that cannot be
Expressed, beneath the moon that will not leave.
My tears do not flow.
They merely sit
On the edge of eyelids, closed.
Like cliffs that halted the waterfall
From making the lake,
Or the greater stream.
I think to myself
How my time could be spent
In the arms of the one I won.
Freely from me,
Out in some chaotic space
Where love is blocked by the open air.
