Hopes And Dreams - Poem by Nick Kler

I live my life beneath my shadows
Scared of my own breath

Covering up my eyes for nothing
Curled up in an empty hell

What have I done to myself?
Drowning hopes and my dreams
Into the rivers of the deceased

I spread my arms into the darkness
Hoping to feel your warmth

My soul is cold and begging to leave
Confined and running out of creed

Nothing is ever as it seems
Time is playing with our needs

So, I slowly unfold my grief
Up on the dark end of the street
Where love is sold in abundance
By the hookers and the thieves

Sun is coming down on me
Tides of grey are pulling me away
I need you to hold me tight
I need you to hold me on the inside
