It was the nighttime of my soul,
scattered among the memories
of broken dreams and promises,
where no one ever sees,
the painful longing in my eyes
as I stand alone and search
the ever changing skies
looking for the one who can,
gather together
this drifting man.
And if I find it not, I will
pull from within my soul,
the pieces of the puzzle that
again will make me whole.
And though my life is darkened still,
it is only twilight..
my eyes adjust to the loss of you,
as my soul begins itís fight,
to step into the future where,
the world I again can faceÖ
But beside me there will always be,
a small and lonely space.

Good compromise of rhyme and free style.

Why does all this sound familiar?...i loved the sound of the strength and being brave... while at the same time admitting to the pain of empty space...
