My Soul

Trying to think of new ways

To avoid the break of day.

New ways to help me

But still the darkness fades.

 

Like an all consuming fire

Burning brightly in my brain.

Only in the darkest night

Can I hide the pain.

 

And I hope the daylight

Will not show it all.

Let it not show the picture

Of the darkness of my soul

 

Lying here, I think of you

What we could have seen

In another world, I wonder

What the picture could have been.

 

And I pray the daylight

Will not show it all.

Let it not show the picture

Let it not show it all.

Please God, let the daylight

Let it not come at all.

Let not the world see the picture

Of the darkness of my soul.

 

Trying to think of new ways

To avoid the break of day.

New ways to help me

But still the memories fade.

About Maitiu

I am a collection of aspects. A father, a husband, an uncle, a son, a teacher, an aspiring writer, an amateur photographer, a poor guitar player, a slightly better singer... Online however I am a 365er looking to find out what people make of my personal poetic musings and my photographs. Drop a penny in an old man's hat and let me know what you think...
