Melancholy twilight
Song of sadness played


Seeking release on bended knee
Searching for the long lost rhyme


I put my tears down on paper
So you won’t see them in my eye


Long forgotten tattered lines
From old and painful rhymes


The unshed tear leaves a deeper scar
Than any cried out loud
For the unshed tear is silent
And silence is a shroud


Realization comes to haunt
That certain things must come to pass
It’s the knowledge that is seen
Looking through the looking glass

Desperation tries to stop
The hand that guides our Fate
But Time becomes an enemy
Time, we come to hate

Silent longing burns
For things we know we’ll never have
Hope lingers on
From memories of the past


Just some remembered bits from a few things I wrote a long time ago.
