All light escapes my sight today,
those happy dreams a world away,
no angels in my heart at play,
no god to keep the hounds at bay.
The spark escapes my grasp today,
the glow of hope soon drifts away,
the scenes are worse each time they play,
they keep my hopes of peace at bay.
The words escape my mind today,
the pages blank and thrown away,
no rhyme to keep my mind at play,
no lines to hold these thoughts at bay.
