The Shadows of the Mind

in the dark black hole within that cloaked a shadow
beneath every conceiving thoughts a burdened hollow
have imprisoned the heart behind the bars of sorrow
that defies to kindle a lasting light to last a long tomorrow
the glitch of joy that once belongs in the essence of living
exist in places unseen, unheard where the shadow is hiding
silenced the soul within, locked the body in all its longing
underneath in single thoughts, a tear fell from an angel crying
the mystery in life’s journey in the pathway of a jigsaw puzzle
hovered with dark clouds as heavenly tears came to drizzle
reminiscing the past when life was once, only a simple dazzle
rekindling moments in the shadows of the mind in a fizzle
languor in the passing of time in cycles on sights bewildered
never-ending thoughts rewinding the longings and wandered
into the vastness of nowhere in silence, no words uttered
ceaseless mourning of the angel’s heart, heavenly favored
the cloudy sky remains above the misty road far ahead
to where the destined soul trails away as to heydays forbid
letting go the glories anchored for the longest time, now to bid
waved the last goodbye from all whisperings of ‘hellos” said
the wailing of the hearts that feeds the darkness to behold
as the unspoken whispers remain to be a mystery untold
silently on the gusty whirlwind of the mind was sadness unfold
embracing the breeze of the worldly passion freezing and cold
without refrain, molding the uncertainties into figures unknown
in visions and imaginations comes and goes swiftly as blown
away from the shadow that grips on tightly as fears grown
but tears wash away the miseries in rushing ripples flown
only the remnants of the old memories treasured through time
each day glows with the sun and listens to the pitch of chime
as mind is tingling with wonders on thoughts of love sublime
unveiling the truth behind the cloaked shadows for a lifetime
let the moon and the stars shine in the darkness of the sky
to brighten faith and hope in every corner of the angels’ sigh
a shadows reborn in spirit to dwell once more in heavens high
keep the smile on thy lips that whispers a promise never cry
