Ramblings and Reflections

Lonely is a word
That has never been alone
Because every time it is spoken
Someone is its home
Hope is never hopeful
Because it is said when all is lost
Always never lasts
For no one counts the cost

Love and luck are equal
Because opposites attract
And like a western pole
I can never find a match

The waves are to the ocean
As the sun is to the sky
The world to our politicians
As a heartache to a lie
Tears are happy things
Because they never have to cry
And crying over spilt milk
Is worse than dying from a sigh

Trees lose their leaves in winter
Only just to show
The wind blown through their branches
Makes them stronger than the cold

But never always happens
Hopefully alone
And destiny has fallen in love
With lucky waves of stone
Obsidianic granite
Hard and colder than goodbye
Hearts are shattered into pieces
When the dreaming begins to die

Light fades into darkness
Darkness lifts into the light
Shadows sometimes win the battle
But every heart can be filled with light
Every heart may also become numb
Because death falls like the rain
Every smile may turn blind and dumb
Just to disprove all the pain

Saddened souls can moan
And weep in solitude
The night flies on and morning breaks
To start another feud
With time and the idea
Because they hold the sway
And either one affects the sun
That counts my life away

Destiny and fate
Have no right to exist
Since things like death and pain
Are included in the mix

Saddened souls can laugh
Because happy fools can moan
And neither one can change the fact
That there are times when everyone is alone…..
