My world is ajar, one not foreseen
I reign in the clouds to cover up the sun
Darkness closes in; I’m crammed in a corner
But I like it this way
Now I don’t have to see
The mistakes that will be made
Are covered up forever
I don’t want to know, nor do I care
I’ve been hurt too much already
My pain remains to be the black
Painted on trees, on leaves, in the sky,
Forever in my heart
I don’t want to cry anymore
Just let me be, let me be alone
And until the clouds disperse
Let the sun to me never be shown.

The author's comments:
The feeling of pain is greatly expressed in this poem. It really just states that suffering can't be ignored.
