My Heart's Desire

The damp shaky fall sends the teardrops,
Flowing from my weather beaten eyes,
Looking for my own rainbow in the clouds,
to bring destiny of fresh untangled dreams.

In a vision; I was about to go to heaven,
Only to find the journey had a delayed start
emptying showers into the reservoir again,
I feel my heart with issues tearing it apart.

I decided to look long at the pale moon,
my desire saw a starry crown sailing in sky,
And the heavenly glow it covers the gloom
And painted a dream with glazed eye.

Darkness in the way blocks the screen of vision,
Light in the morning drives death in the night,
My heart's desire is to flee from among the living,
And be at rest in that new heavenly light.

And the entire world will turn to face the wind,
When my bones sitting alone turn into dusty ashes,
And the towns I had been around cannot find,
The flesh locked in the cage of invisible shapes.

Ghost with sins cannot dream when life is over,
My heart's desire every time I am tempted,
Is to cast pride way into the tempters driven fire,
No worlds could relieve the guilt presented.
