Happiness no longer lives here
Deathly dark is
Tis so barren here,
So unforgiving here
Flowers of love no longer
Hope, sweet hope.
Feathery hope, once
perched on the
branches of my heart.
Has flown away.
Rivers of sorrow,
the laughter that
used to flow.
Everything is all gone
Pain and darkness
and have won.
