Darkness Stays

February 17, 2008
By Anh Dao Tran, Shreveport, LA

I’ve walked in darkness forever
The light never came
Somehow the silence stayed
You changed my life
But it’s too late
For those words to be said.

I never meant to let you go
All those happy moments
Have disintegrated into painful sorrow
Within my closing heart
You chose your way and I chose mine
The distance will always separate
And I wonder if it will ever change.

Can you forgive my stupidity?
No longer can I speak
No longer can I think
No longer can I see again
The ugly hand of darkness lingers.
