Ode to Sorrow by Lang Leav
Too little, too late
I’ve failed to seal my fate
I thought I could all along
How could I have been so wrong?
Strong in heart, strong in mind
My pride made me so blind
To the things that really mattered
Now I lie here, broken and battered
I close my eyes and start to pray
It’s so hard for me to say
I was wrong, help me Lord
I’ve spent far more them I can afford
I can do nothing good in this state,
I’m so little, so desolate.
Excuse me, darling
But I’m a thief
I steal hearts
Yours, to be specific
So take my hand
Lay here and watch the stars
As the world turns elsewhere
Follow me to dreams.
It has become my greatest fear
This emptiness inside of me
My life is full to the brim
With peace and joy and love
With so many blessings,
How could this hole still gape?
It strikes my heart with guilt
The shame of selfishness
When I look in the mirror
At my proud countenance
The glass shatters in my mind
Outside, I am the very image of contentedness;
On the inside, my thoughts still in complete disarray.
A dangerous circumstance
Has made rebellious thoughts
Rise up within me
Like molten lava
But I’ve never been on to act
I just dream
Of a brighter day
Of a day when I am free.
Her song, his song, a word divine
It began as a seed of sweet friendship
A tender touch, a sentiment benign
Bloss’md into another kind of kinship
Rose petals rained the day that they married
Like a beautiful but ominous cloud
The petals scattered, never tarried
Their petty things became a bitter shroud
A tiny, lovely girl was born to them
She was a very special one, indeed
Annmarie’s smile reminded those two
Of the great joy they had come to forget
Now, their song, a word eternal
Washed over the trying flames eternal.
What is happening to me?
My eyes are bleeding, my soul is crying
I’m lying here, all alone with my screaming
The thorns of black roses digging into my skin
The agony swallowing me whole
On the other side of my mind
Your body is against mine, warm delight
And you whispered, please don’t go
I would watch you late at night
When you were just breathing and dreaming
I touched your cheek with my fingertips
And you would whimper in your sleep
I would smile at you then
I held you close in the half-darkness
Promising to never let you go
The fountain of my sincerity overflowed…
The well wishes and kind words
Of friends and strangers alike
Have brought a sense of peace
To my troubled heart and mind
Whenever I feel the raindrops
I look over those heartfelt words
And security washes over me
I feel whole once more.
Currently I’m using up all my writing time for editing Part One of Eighteen and writing Part Two as well as Chapter 7 of Felicity.
Also, my my birthday and several other personal events are happening next week.
Due to all this busy-busy stuff, daily poems are on hold but will return next Saturday, the 23rd. Thank you to everyone who has liked and reblogged my poetry. I appreciate your support!
To ALL my followers!
I see deep pain
Bitter regret and sorrow
When I look into your eyes
What dreams have you left behind?
It may or may not be my business
But I can’t help but wonder
What comprises your past?
I see something dark
A cloud you have formulated
To cover up your inmost emotions…
…Maybe one day you’ll tell me
Your deepest, darkest fear
But let me warn you:
