POEM: The Perfect Tomorrow That You Left Behind

Gossamer despair
A drip dance down your hair
Caressing a chain that encircles your neck
Separating a heart keeping thoughts on check

Grotesquely beautified
Parading diamond tears as you crucified
Your soul with a swan story
In exchange for the gold of broken glory

With your heart in shards
Chasing truth in the faces of loose cards
You cry that you’re losing your mind,
The world’s hopelessly unkind,
And you wish you could find
The perfect tomorrow that you left behind

You wish you could find
The perfect tomorrow that you left behind

How your heart is grieving and aching
For a game of love giving and love taking
You score yourself on how you’ve been deceived
Meriting the stage as you take leave
Of your senses and begin a new season to share

Your script of despair
A sonorous prayer

Grotesquely beautified
Parading diamond tears as you crucified
Your soul with a swan story
In exchange for the gold of broken glory

You wish you could find
The perfect tomorrow that you left behind
