Restrained

I wait in a lonely world

Only to find my eyes covered by a veil of disappointment

Overwhelming me with lost hope

 

I listen for beauty within the music around me

Only to find one more sad song

Banishing me further into the whirlpool of desolation

 

I give until I can give no more

Only to find my own hands empty

Reaching for a chance to love again

 

I attempt to walk away

Only to find a chain around my neck

Leashing me to the unforgiving memories of love

 

When will I be able see beyond the colors of darkness

To appreciate the vibrant colors of life?

Must I bear the dark bitter winter

Before I can feel the warmth of spring once again?

The End
