Romeo Della Valle

Feeling Hollowed

Idle within emptiness
Disappointment fills the air
A chilling wind of harshness
Sweeping seasons of despair...

Fingernails bitter purple
A tousle of shredded hair
Weakened limbs and fragile nerves
Dreams strangled to disrepair...

How long 'till the sun comes out?
Forever must still be there
Without the light all things fade
Darkness makes them disappear....

A burning torch within me
Faith, the everlasting flair
Scorching both sense and reason
Too blind to show heaven near...
