Bleak

My mind is bleak and toneless are these walls
Moments are passing by like trains that never stop
I think without a thought but somehow I think after all
The breath of nightly calm would cure my tumbling heart

You'd be frightened if you were here
To embrace my life – has to sear

The shore remains unmoved
By those rousing cries that are flirting with sleep

I've wandered to find
But still, still I'm not there
A journey so infinite
And still, still I'm not there

You'd be frightened if you were here
To encourage – life has to sear
