Behind the Unseen
Bow and arrow through my chest,
Do not know why and have no guess,
I cannot sleep nor can I rest,
Hence I do not look my best,
Darkened circles under my eyes,
Hearing no truth itâ€™s only lies,
So I can no longer disguise,
A smile that smiles but really cries.
As I lie here in my bed,
Thoughts are racing through my head,
All the words I have never said,
Faced with uncertainty that I dread,
Send a postcard to me please,
I implore you on bent knees,
And request that you answer my pleas,
Cut the knot so I can breathe.
It feels like I am choking,
All truth I am not joking,
This heart of mines is smoking,
It aches and it is croaking,
It is beating wildly inside,
Yet it has nowhere to hide,
Been on a rough and long ride,
Crashing hard just like the tide.
There is something you should know,
About this long and crooked row,
Row of hurtâ€¦no place to go,
Despite the straight line that shows,
I am no stranger to mistakes,
Iâ€™ve got oceansâ€¦Iâ€™ve got lakes,
I have floods and huge earthquakes,
Although you canâ€™t see my heartaches.
