"Things change. And friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody."


Oh gentle winds 'neath moonlit skies,
Do not you hear my heartfelt cries?

Below the branches, here about,
Do not you sense my fear and doubt?
Side glistening rivers, sparkling streams,
Do not you hear my woeful screams?

Upon the meadows, touched with dew,
Do not you see my hearts a'skew?
Beneath the thousand twinkling stars,
Do not you feel my jagged scars?

Seek not my mournful heart kind breeze,
For you'll not find it 'mongst these trees.

It's scattered 'cross the moonlit skies,
Accompanied by heartfelt sighs.
It's drifting o're the gentle rain,
A symbol of my silent pain.

It's buried 'neath the meadow fair,
Conjoined with all the sorrow there.
It's lost among the stars this night,
Too far to ease my quiet fright.

No gentle winds, seek not my heart,
For simply ... it has torn apart.

After being broken and battered, my heart couln't take the pain any longer. Enjoy.

I have yet to find an adjective to describe this.  For now, beautiful will have to suffice.  I give you a well-deserved five stars :)

Wonderful. There's something about a broken hearth that really makes a person think of themselves in relation to "the sound and fury), eh? I agree with the others, this deserves more views.
