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 it’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 hurt…no place to go,
Despite the straight line that shows,
I am no stranger to mistakes,
I’ve got oceans…I’ve got lakes,
I have floods and huge earthquakes,
Although you can’t see my heartaches.
