The Dark of Sadness

Written at age 17

 

Every grain of sand in my drowning sea

Is just the words forgotten from my plea

Every pebble in my long sad road

Is just a truth I was never told

I'm in the dark of sadness

A lonely soul without a light

I realize you wonder if I can reach you

Without madness

You’re the only soul with enough might...

So how much longer?

Every star in my darkened sky

Are just the words that were said

 To make me want to die

Every dark cloud with no silver lining

Is just the place I live

That's were you’ll find me

I'm in the dark of sadness

A lonely soul who has lost its fight

I realize you wonder what happened

to my gladness

You’re the only soul with enough sight...

So how much longer?

Every tear that falls down my forgotten face

is just the realization that for me there is no place

Every drop of rain in my tearful downpour

is just the realization that for me there is no more

I'm whirling around in my cheerful gloom

I'm in the dark of sadness

I'll stay here living in my doom

I'm in my joyful madness...

So how much longer?

So how much longer?
