What Were Laid And Hidden

hiding inside in its deepest depth
an angel’s cry echoing in the darkness
lost the glow of light from far beyond
left in a sigh without sight stood groping

trailing what were laid and hidden
beyond the chamber walls
…of the heart forsaken

fearless, in a tight grip holds the breath
along the woodlands hovering emptiness
a shadow awaiting all that she longed
reborn from the past endlessly hoping

trailing what were laid and hidden
beyond the chamber wall
…of the heart forsaken

in shattered dreams selfless underneath
on her knees with broken wings, lifeless
utter words no one ever dares to understand
an angel through time incessantly searching

      the never ending saga as long as we exist and as the heart keeps on beating and would feel every bit of emotions instilled by visions and sights that will ponder our thoughts every now and then from the changes of time in each phase of life…
