The Tear Drops Speak Of Loneliness

The tear drops speak of loneliness
As they wash a painful Soul
And the melody playing on the radio is that of a
Lonely song, the lyrics speak of someone like you 
And a golden voice croons of the pain in my heart

But as I strive to uncover the abundance of adoration 
That can so excite a heart and make it flutter
A melancholy air engulfs me and I am cautious 
And apathy clings to the moment and I feed the presence 
Of pretense 

In this vortex of sadness, dark clouds hover and the misty
Rain is just on time to mask the frowns that follow a 
Saddened heart as eyes swell and crow’s feet encroach
On the squeezed crooked lips of a cold numbing 

It is then that the wind calls your name 
And as I dream of ecstasy 
Reality strikes me with vengeance and in this state of being 
I find myself in a dimension of darkness floating in a sea of agony 
I reach out but there is no you to touch

And I wonder will you ever come to me 
And lead me to the light or must I, as does the dead man walking 
Take a solitary walk to the solitary light in the solitary world 
That is my solitary life
And the tear drops speak of loneliness.
