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?
