Misery

raven heart

Shadows cast upon the lonely faces
Frowning in the darkness
Of my never ending agony

I can see a great black bird flying high above me
As if it were some portent
Signifying my doom

For no sun rises in my mind
And no peace settles in my soul
It seems to me that misery
Is all I will ever know

Darkness settles in my soul black with pain and sorrow
Praying for a bright sunrise
I wait until the morrow

Now countless eons I have waited sitting here within the cold
But no warmth embraces me
So I remain alone

For no sun rises in my mind
And no peace settles in my soul
It seems to me that misery
Is all I will ever know

I can feel the pain rising up from the depths
Of a great black lake
That is my soul

I can feel the years and the tears again as if a child once more
Vulnerable and weak
With all the world as my enemy

For no sun rises in my mind
And no peace settles in my soul
It seems to me that misery
Is all I will ever know

All I’ll ever know…

    This is very high-end. 16? You have not been 16 for many lifetimes.

    • Funny that… a child writing “…as if I was a child again.” I think about the piece from time to time. I’ve always looked back at every stage of my life and wished I could protect my younger self. That’s what this 16 yo was feeling, he couldn’t protect his younger self, and now feel that helplessness as well.
