Not physical yet daunting,
They’re thrown about for the world to hear,
Even the undeserving,
We are under a microscope of false perceptions,
A single tear yields nothing,
The power is sometimes disgraceful,
A matter of good or bad,
The taste can be bland,

A burn to the heart,
A shadow of what once was,
These words of deception,
Causing nothing but hopelessness,
A dark cloud in the endless sky,
An Elegy for a long lost friend.
Even in times of despair,
We still find words.
