The heart and the mind work funny ways
So desperate for happiness
They carve images of love out of tearful memories
So pathetic for attention
They close their eyes to reality and choose to believe in a mirage.
Courage dear heart,
Its not your time or place.
All the seas have dried up
And the land has shrivelled,
Like a burnt page
That lost its bet to the engulfing flames.
The air smells of ash and smoke.
Don’t walk upto me with your tears
I carry a fire. I annihilate.
I wish we could be just souls
Be, without being.
I wish we could love without form
Feel, without being called out.
What is courage, but to go on
Losing, despite knowing
We’re not lost, but the wasted path leads nowhere.
