Lonely Love

How do you banish a lonely memory from seasoned mind?

The one that keeps you locked away, with me continuing to pine?

How do you escape from a loud sadness that threatens to echo eternal?

The quietness of dispair, its hush so loudly verbal?

How do you evade insanity’s escape of alluring intoxication?

The mad drunken carousel, spinning me crooked into scale damnation?

How do you hold on to sagacious faith, that you will one day return?

Finding beautiful ruin of sanctuary, it’s walls possessed of knowledge unlearned?

How do you not hear my leaden prayers arid with their smudgy tears?

Crying in need of your safety, ready for you to appear.
