Its been a long time since I’ve written anything, and it's slightly terrifying, but I’m glad to be trying again.
I ponder the sun as its climbing
At the life that it gives to the day
To rise and to fall without failing
Beginning and ending the same
I feel the world tugging and pulling
Threads holding me hostage like chains
Separate, but still apart of
The day and its mocking regime
The sun seems unable to reach here
Though I see it as night turns to day
There’s a darkness It can’t seem to breach
A small world made of memories and hate
But my world I have filled it with colours
Glimpses of days bright and strange
The gloom has small rays of sunlight
In the darkness I’ve grown to embrace
As the light fades I wonder at my world
Is this something I chose to create?
A place where the light cannot reach me
Held apart from the trials and the pain
I ponder the sun as its setting
Its life shining far from my face
It will rise and will fall without failing
Beginning and end held in place
