Loves lost and loves never founds just plain suck, don't they?

Paradise

Can you feel my breath?
For it is all of me that will touch you
Iíve no vessel to travel the worlds
I have seen in your eyes
Iíve no gifts that would fail
To taint your hands
Iíve no kiss that could make
You yearn for more
Me and my dastardly dreams
Lead me to a paradise
That I can only glimpse from
The bars of a cage
If I were to jump, my feet would miss the ledge
If I were to fly, my wings would melt at the sun
If I were to run, my legs would die before the line
I spent my life searching for
Something I knew I would never have
I found in myself
Things I knew I never wanted
And now that I can see paradise
Through my half-closed eyes
I havenít the energy
I havenít the desire
And sleep takes away my heaven

Wonderful work. I can feel every line you
created here...

to taint your hands"
This is truly impressive, thanks for sharing
it.

Wonderful, so expressive. I truly enjoyed reading this. Very sad piece. Keep up the excellent work.
