The darkness, the cold,
The loss of a chance to be bold.
Hands tied, lips sealed,
Unable to truly feel.
Silence falls everlasting,
Only the sound of my heart blasting.
Unable to see what is there,
Unable because all is bare.
I look in the darkness for a clue,
Something to cast another hue.
I find that deep within,
I nurture it with hope that something may begin.
Lost in the forever night eyes closed,
Looking for something deeper I suppose.
Not sure if I can cope…
So I continue to nurture my ray of hope.
