Asylum

 

Asylum
By AJ O’Brien.

Shadows turn to dust
voices melting
slipping to the floor,
reality
tumbling memories,
an unwanted smile.

Far away echoes
charred remains, a distant place.
A graveyard secret
mistakes stain her mind.
Someone to love forever
meaningless thoughts that float away.

And the sun still shone

And the sun still shone.

I cry for the lonely
and pray for those
that cannot cope.
Wishing dreams
would come true
for those who live in hope.

Holding the hand of sorrow
through darkest days,
listening for words unsaid.
Watching out for each other,
because the blind,
they need to be led.
