Happiness, A Myth From The Past - Poem by Zach Kiley

Sitting here wasting my life away
Everything I seem to do leads me stray
Only wanting to feel the warmth of your touch
My heart aches of loneliness
Waiting for the moment you find me
Lead me from this place
Hopefully to find the place of bliss
The bliss I have been searching for
Longing I have for the myth of love
Wanting it to reside within my heart
Gazing toward my window
I see the birds singing a delicate tune
Why can I not be of such simplicity
Nothing more than eating and living
Feelings plague me naught
If I were a bird
Plagued I am though of these human feelings
My eyes weighted by the sorrow in my soul
I must live for the moment I’m told
But how I am I to do that
When there is nothing to live for
The moment I wanted to live has past by
I missed the times where I was suppose to follow my drum
The beat dies within my heart
As a drummer nearing the end of a ballet
Harder it becomes as these days seep by
Forgetting my place in this lonely world
Tears stream down my visage as realization strikes me
Showing me that my life is coming to a close
Knowing the path I choose
Is naught the most knowledgeable
But just trying to survive is torment enough
Becoming happy is next to never now
Only when another influence plays within me
Filling me with is invigorating aroma
Life itself seems to dissipate around me
When the influence is within me
That’s when I’m truly happy
Now that influence evades me
Now happiness is just a myth from the past
