Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

trying to understand

There’s no more cloudless joy.
There’s only searing pain.
Life just keeps dragging on.
Regret as bitter rain.

I only rue the rainbows.
But, they no longer block my view.
There was so much more to me.
And I gave it all to you.

Some things I can’t explain.
Others I feel I know.
Fate was cards in my hands.
I blinked and let them go.

Evil lingered in our midst.
It took away our air.
It filled our hearts with leaden ideas.
And we just left them there.

I didn’t understand.
I stumbled and we fell.
I crawled on legs that did not bend.
My prayers, I couldn’t sell.

I once had a beautiful wish.
I cried a sorrowful cry.
I sat and lost a loved one.
I strayed and didn't know why.

I see the light above.
I feel the darkness down below
The stars appear just out of my reach.
Yet, they journey through my soul.
