A Hollow Heart; an Empty World
A Hollow Heart; an Empty World;
A vacuum desperately demanding gravity;
An ocean with its depth lost,
A tangled path unclipped, unclosed,
A treasure yet to be sought,
An eye veiling secrets,
A hand left untouched,
A sky fathomless;
Hopelessness and despair,
Darken the edges of my dreams.
Still there,s a light that retains my spirit;
A child's wish to be fulfilled,
Embarking on the fluttering hope,
Yet to be extinguished.
It wakes me up to fight, to breath, to live.
I pray for it to be forever in its place,
To outgrow a spark into fire;
To save me from drowning in the waywardness;
To change my dreams into reality;
To come out victorious of every evil;
To vanquish the uprising bitterness;
To replace this hollow heart,
With a glee-filled world.
I pray for it to retain permanence!
