What is love when hearts are departed?
What is the night sky when the stars are parted?
What is light to the dark hearted?
What is happiness when misery has started?
Questions engulf our minds like the sea on beaches,
Unsolved puzzles like jigsaws with missing pieces.
Trying to figure out life with the rest of our reasons,
Complexity like trying to remember our lives as fetuses.
Darkness and light blended to make a new shade,
Realization dawns upon us as we find that truth fades,
A blue glade, like the samurai that views blades.
The roses that wilt away to grey, the winter that freezes us away to our face.
An untimely death that grasps us leaving not a single trace,
Do we torment our minds questioning what is time and space?
Nights and pain, lights and fame, skies and names; eyes that feign.
A new start a new riddle to these existences that we are living,
A new heart a new drizzle; rain that pours down into the rivers.
Do you feel my words, do you understand my grief?
My worries concerning the world whilst people sigh relief.
Leaders hoarding gems and pearls while we sit here with high belief;
Trusting their deception oh how our blind eyes deceive.
