The Sunset

Silver Lakes Helendale, Ca 8/14/2015 | Photo: queenie

I watched the sun set today by the lake,
the water was calm, the wind was kissing my cheek.
A perfect view to end the day.
Instead of feeling happy, my heart became sad.

As I adore the scenery, my heart realizes there will always be someone missing in the picture
who might also wish to join me on this great escape
However, our world is as far as heaven and earth.

Prisoner

nowhere to go, nowhere to run.

looks like this is the end of the line.

a prisoner of my own self,

depression and insanity is waiting by the corner

let me be free

from this prison i myself built

i need someone to free me

and get me back to reality

this dark and empty alley

where i normally walk

seems like a never-ending journey

i am tired, let me be free

from this prison of loneliness

full of darkness and desperation

give me strength, give me one more day

as i try to escape from the four corners of insanity

dear Lord, give me more strength

i beg you please, release me to this world of confusion
