Beautiful Thorn

Walls enclosing my heart, shutting out the lights 
My thoughts drifting back to our loved filled nights
My soul perished by my own wrongs
Music now a curse, I shuffle threw our songs 

You have become a beautiful thorn in my side
Cutting in deeper as my longing becomes a limp in my stride.
Slowly i snuff out the flames burning for you.
Failing every time with day dreams of us two.

Rocking myself in the arms of the enemy.
Knowing i had recklessly committed a felony. 
Would you still believe in me after all i have done.
Holding me in your sweet embrace whispering i am the one. 

My soul is wilting away without you
I watch my eyes turning grey from blue.
This longing has brought me to my knees 
I can feel my heart slower its beat as my soul weeps. 

Come back to me my lost dark sparrow.
Touch my wounds dripping remove this self driven arrow.
Help me dry these tears from my dying eyes
Take my hand don't let go. Walk with me into the forever sun rise.

Another powerful pen Vintage Sparrow! Your piece is so beautiful but sad and filled of so much pain and love yearning, dear friend. Very heartfelt and melancholic. Great imagery! Enjoyed it. A 7 from me! The best to you! Wishing you a very lovely day! In his light! God bless you! :) D.

This is very beautiful and flows like honey with a bittersweet after taste. Emile. #7
