Life Tells


Life tells
me to go
and to arrange
a bouquet
of sorrow,
I make.
You hold
my hand
with care
but I slip,
the sun rises,
but darkness
does drip.
Your love
grows
in my
secret chamber,
you are mine,
still, emptiness
fills my bed.
I laugh,
but in void
tear in lieu
of smile
is silently
paid...

    The sun rises, but darkness does drip.
    Tells all for even in the light of day sorrow (darkness) exists.
    Heart held love /empty bed
    Tears instead of smiles
    Life does tell of a cruel story (Report) Reply
