Desolation

 

 

They say there are wavering ruby scarves inside of me,

But within me, it’s the fire that is extinguishing

 

They say someone slammed the lid upon me,

But within me it’s the voice that is trembling

 

They say no Pain no Gain,

But it’s just that i am fading

 

Happiness to me is a phantasm,

I try to run, yet i am sinking

 

They say life is a roller coaster,

So here in the pool of sorrows, i am drowning

 

They all are ignorant of the fact that life is a twisted cobweb,

Alas! They don’t know i am collapsing

 

I wish tomorrow comes with a new hope,

As to lift my soul and to make my spirit enriching

 

I ask myself very often!

Is it that life is a stained window?

With rainbow colors and full of lighting

 

I will keep my emotions trapped in the amber,

oh my poor heart, wake up from the slumber!
