melancholy days without end
grey skies stretch beyond the horizon
no light at the end of the tunnel
no silver linings for me

colors fade to black and white
smiles mask hidden agendas
people casually pass me by

who am I?
why am I here?
what do they want from me?
why can't I be happy?


an angel of light approaches
her touch stirs me deeply
my heart bleeds love

perhaps... hope lives
as she whispers sweetly:

"you are cherished"
every human soul needs to be shown love

Thanks Qita. I know the ending is a contradiction of the title, but I wanted it to end on a hopeful note

beautiful messages here

an angel of light approaches
her touch stirs me deeply
my heart bleeds love

wow sounds similar to
something i wrote but
doesn't touch people
the same, good work!
