The contrast of which can never be known
Why people feel as if they are alone
When surrounded by love
When all they are missing is someone to think of
Lights of darkness sooth the walls
Never again filled with a guide
A trapped soul lost inside
Never again to be exposed to the light
The darkness burns their eyes and takes their sight
The doors which are never unsealed
All the secrets which are revealed
An anger that is never found
An noisy room that is filled with sound
I see a gloomy face of a lonley man
His face old yet young, it is weird the way that he stands
The black roses that grew
Images seen, but never new
All things repeated
The old man pleaded
To be let out of that place
It could have been easy but that's not the case
But there's a lesson you see,
Somethings are meant to be

Very mysterious, but very understandable <don't ask!> I really liked this. It made me think a little at the end about "somethings are meant to be"

Welcome, and keep up the good work

This is so full of images, and wonderful.
