Cynical Darling

Why so cynical, Darling?

Hiding that smile of yours.

Lies in this world

seem to wound more

than bullets and swords.

                                                                                                                                          .

Did someone you love betray you?

Coloring your look on the world?

With a bleak derision,

making every decision

between the bad

and the worse.

                                                                                                                                          .

Dull and disheartened,

you’re back where you started

and too scared to start again.

Just waste,

and be wasted,

a future erased,

is better

than living

in the places you’ve been.

                                                                                                                                          .

Open your eyes,

you will see that the sky

is still

blue as it was.

All this hate you’ve created,

the grave that you’re craving

is just waiting for blood.

                                                                                                                                          .

Why so cynical, Darling?

What have you lost

you can’t find?

Keep searching

the outer reaches,

because just sitting here

is leaving you behind.

                                                                                                                                          .

                                                                                                                                          .
