A Poem by masqued_muse

Poem about how most of us feel?

 The vacancy of tears
          makes it too hard to handle.
      The pages turned by years
          burn through life's candle.
       But I feel the earth shake
           sorrow strips beauty's crown.
        And the light on my soul makes
           chains from an awful sound.

        I am sent stormy days
            taking refuge from the noise.
        And if the thunder stays
            in faith, I lift my voice.
        God, I'd give you anything
            drown the wine in memory.
        Give  me snow and barren spring,
             but shield me from this agony.

         Let the sunrise freeze,
             bound in eternal curse.
         Make stone of gentle breeze
             as I try to pen this verse.
         Let heaven be scarred in flame
             as hell paints my dreams.
         The stars blush in shame
             romance an evil scheme.

         The angels can't release
             the millions from crying.
         My soul will know no peace,
             as long as children are dying....
