The Sky

The thought of song writing and poetry both have crossed my mind before; this isn't the first time, or even the first poem I wrote. I just wanted to share this one because it's me. I'm not trying to sound like I'm depressed or anything; this was originally supposed to be positive. I don't know what happened, haha.



The Sky


I look into the sky
and find myself amazed.
The clouds are aligned;
I'm in a daze.

I stare into the sun,
for seconds at a time.
I close my eyes
to get rid of the grime.

I look all day
and look all night;
in a state of dismay
I become one in flight.

I take off,
far from here
and find the light;
I've been searching for years.

I grab at it;
I clutch.
Then get this feeling
in my gut.

You've been here all along,
how blind was I?
Right by my side,
in you, I'll confide.

The light is blinding;
it burns my hand.
I let go, crying;
it falls into the sand.

I fall to the ground
hurt, and broken.
My world goes round
after hearing the words spoken.


I fall asleep;
tears stained on my cheek.
Everything is bleak,
as I continue to bleed...
