A Silent Prayer

When eyes are sealed in utter darkness
Embracing the silent voice inside
And the breaking of clouds deep within
Break through eyelids of torture yet again
Holding back the breath of hope
Desire oppressed by wandering thoughts
Screaming madness


Deep within
Body withdrawn from the self
Lips cracked


Emotions snapped


Bleeding of the heart
The only freedom as for now


But for how long
Will silence came from a evil tongue?
A flash of hope passes by


Like a shooting star


But with zero hope to apply


There can be no return


Only a reflection of hope
Bewildered eyes
Searching for light
As a silent prayer escape
Into nothingness…


Left deep cutting hurt
With eyes so bewildered
Sealed by utter darkness
Left behind to
Bleed

Tinka, This is so sad. Beautiful poem but a heart too too sad for such a beautiful lady w/ such a dynomite smile always there for me Always! Thanks Tinka,
Remember, a frown is just a smile turned upside down so stand on your head if you must and see the smile that's hiding behind that frown.
All our Love
