You make me long for a song

I've never heard before.

Your uncomposed melodies

and unwritten lyrics

take a toll on my soul.

Crepuscular rays.

Helios still rides,

no matter how big the cloud;

the sun's bound to shine,

and with this amount of rain,

there is no doubt:

the most beauteous flower

is set to sprout.

I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff.
