Comparison of the Heart

Summer sunrise

Winter sunset

Snowflakes falling upon frozen ground

Dripping drops of rain freeze on ledges

Sharpened to a point

------------------------------------------

Petals of the blossoms fall softly, gently

The flowers are turning brittle

They are dying

The weather it is changing

--------------------------------------

Within the heart is lacking sunshine

Lacking water

Cannot seem to grow

There is only darkness

Turning brown and brittle

Cracking, falling

Apart

----------------------------------

Cannot seem to compare

Cannot seem to give what is deserved

More than gold to me

More than I can do

Only silver

--------------------------------

Life's blood

Every drop from the ocean waves

Sunshine for every day of the year

Words will never explain

Emotions in vain

Drowning

Drowning in the pain

-----------------------------

Trying to be

Cannot seem to see

A heart bleeding for what seems

Broken at the seams

Demons growing, feeding on fears

An inner lake of tears

------------------------------

What more is there to say

Shaken to the core

Wishing there were enough words

Love compared

Summer sunrise

Winter sunset
