Pale Shades

from by Elephantis



We all find ourselves at times completely overwhelmed with a sadness that we cant possibly live with. Whether that's losing a loved one, heartbreak, a traumatic event. And it can feel like you're never going to be happy again, so what's the point in carrying on But what we have to remember is that the sun always comes back up in the morning, the darkness is only temporary.


I gave everything
Held out in open palms
These blossoms devoured
But they always remain

My eyes are heavy
In the dead of the night
Pacing empty streets of silence
This was once a forest of life

I showed you the branches
Of my willow heart
You wrenched it open exposing the roots
A reminder forever engraved

That day you hid under the dirt
When you shut your eyes to the light we shared
I found a strength inside

These cold hands wait for the warmth
Of your last reassuring words

For the first time in my life
The sun has gone
Darker than ever before
But when the A.M. haze seems endless
Know the sun is only in waiting
Ready to shine, to bring a new morning, to bring everything to light

I close my eyes
But still I wake
I wait for time to stop

So far away
The echoes of my past begin to fade
I see the pale shades of morning
