Playing In The Dark

Source

The girls’ heart walks with thin-skinned feet

While the mind of Boy has gone obsolete

Muted silver skies screamed out overhead

If such eyes could write with tears they shed


Both on different ends tugging on life’s’ rope

Sinking in the questions of fates forlorn hope

The quiet eyes are not aligned with one another

As fingers strangle the hands of time and smother


Opponents they have become one on each side

Neither one wanting to play a game that will divide

Emptiness slipped between the two who now knew

That darkness was present and if they’d pull through


Memories that played in the dark will come to light

A path unraveled as the tempo brought in the nights

Uncertainty has fogged the mind and the heart

Leaving the two wondering of a fresh new start


Like two negatives in a dark room waiting to be exposed

A beautiful picture hidden and rather not disclosed

The eyes will hear what the ears can see

Calling it a masterpiece with time that will guarantee
