Through Sightless Eyes
Another new morning burns at midnight's mist
Visions are swarming, to steal one last kiss.
These faeries of dream fade ever so slow,
When touched by the beam of daytime's bright glow.
Each stayed through the night, as staid company.
Made easy my plight; this sad symphony.
Caress and cajole, they flit and flutter
Each one knows their role as nightmare's shutter.
Contemplative here, dancing wildly there,
Then new one appears, lays an old one bare.
Always more than two, gladly do they part;
Allow one that's new, to play with my heart.
Dancing through darkness, they're ever the light.
There's no emptiness, just shadings of white.
In their beauty grey, I revel and play.
Grieving for today, which sends them away.
Their laughter like sun, dreams always worthwhile.
Just mem'ries each one, of "her" perfect smile.
"I don't claim to be a wise man, a poet or a saint.
Just another man who's searching for a better way."
Jon Bon Jovi
