The Departed

Problem stays and problem goes
Problem moves and problem flows
Problem me and problem you
The problem is real and the problem is true.

Broken here and broken there
Broken blind and broken stare
Broken me and broken you
Heartbreakingly real, heartbreakingly true.

Empty out and empty in
Empty stop and empty begin
Empty me and empty you.
The emptiness is real and the emptiness is true.

Losing sight and losing mind
Losing soul and losing time.
Losing me and losing you.
Losing the real and losing the true.
Losing everything, over and through.

Sorrow in

Sorrow in word.
Sorrow in writing.
Sorrow in reading,
All of the tears I am fighting.

Sorrow in mute.
Sorrow in sound.
Sorrow in speaking,
All of the misery I’ve found.

Sorrow in love.
Sorrow in hate.
Sorrow in feeling,
That this is all fate.

Sorrow in happiness.
Sorrow in all.
Sorrow in the moment,
Before the splashing fall.

Sorrow in the vivid.
Sorrow in the bleak.
Sorrow in the place of,
The happiness I seek.

Sorrow in the river.
Sorrow in the depth.
The cold water taking,
The sorrow in last breath.

Love for Alkaid

Crimson waves to catch my stare.
Eyes burning bright with passion.
Content to just breathe your air.
I want to scream “I like you!”, but my soul is too shy to say. I’m too quiet to confess my love for Alkaid.

Brighter than the brightest stars.
Content to just be in your light.
I could only ever be with you from afar.
I want to scream “I want you!”, but my soul fights to say. I’m too weak to confess my love for Alkaid.

Beauty in human form.
Spark my feelings and ignited my heart.
To be by your side, is my destiny sworn.
I want to scream “I need you!”, but my soul fails to say. I’m not good enough to confess my love for Alkaid.

The sweet call of your voice.
Lure me in like Soren’s song.
To follow, I have no choice.
I want to scream “I love you!”, but my soul cries instead. I’m realizing now, Alkaid is dead.

Crimson waves of passions flare.
Burning bright in darkened air.
Beauty not forgotten.
An eternity born.
Sing from the heavens
Give all your grace.
Hear me now.
I love Alkaid.
