To end up alone in a world full of pain
Where life has become just a cold dark refrain To drift along on the cold dark tracks On maps of a mind that is fading to black
A face; a feeling that once felt so real
That face that used to be full of zeal And a memory is all, a fading whisp Reach out to touch its frowning lips
Closing your eyes to a world now so fleet
Time moving faster that you tired aching feet The ticking tock of the clock in the hall Whispering time to the pendulums call
A sound; a voice in a distant room
Echoing close but then gone just as soon Calling a name so familiar and then Long forgotten and going again
Alone in the crowd, may as well not be here
These strangers are talking but simply can’t hear Their words coming slurred from distorted lips Hurting my ears plugged with finger tips
To end up forgotten in a world of shadows
Struggling to breathe in a river so shallow Washed away by the tides of an age The current too strong to turn back the page
To reach a blank page and with trembling fingers
Grasp the pen, watch the nib as it lingers So much to say and a future to live Why must we fade with so much still to give
A cruel twist in the hand of fate
The garden is fading; the path and the gate. To end up alone in a world full of pain Where life has become just a cold dark refrain. Articulate poems about Dark Good poems on Fate Powerful Future Poems

What is life I wonder? What’s the purpose of my existence? How did we all come to life? And how was it all even created? As a child I rummaged my brain for answers but could find none And I
I kissed the pillows of her cheeks. Covering myself in the blanket of her caress. While here nothing is heavy. Maintaining the balance of smiles in the bed of her arms She doesn’t mind my snore, relaxed in complete comfort.
Life is a symbiosis, relationship it makes possible, interaction among humans it creates, social system it establishes, cultural institution it builds, political arrangement to avoid vacuum, it puts in place. Life is a symbiosis, bridge it throws to span human
A dinner A movie show A trip to the zoo None of these Are as fine as A day spent thinking about you I had a heart and that is true But now it’s gone from me to u When
At least once in life do make a wish; not necessarily for returns, but for others an act of compassion; an offering.. more often it’ll be a reason to live life unconditionally… At least once in life do make an
