Ode to the Undying Heart
December 1, 2013 § 1 Comment
In a place far, far away
a tiny light burns bright,
A promise, clear as day
comfort, in the coldest night.
I live, in the distant shadow
seeing the ray, flicker and play
I desire it not, my heart’s fallow
hope and me, must go our separate way.
I notice, life blooms all around
dreams abundant and joy is flowing
wretch that I’am, ignored, unbound
I detest the truth, the cursed knowing.
Prolonged limbo! And a fine day it was
when the ember finally did vanish
Alas! There goes my final cause
Henceforth I exist- till I must perish.
For what’s a life without belief
something real to do each day
loved, ignored, looking up a hill so steep
and promising to alight it someway.
