The first day, I’m alienated and lost
Smushed into a box, praying for hope
Confined within these 4 walls
A lowly servant
Unable to break the chains
The second day, harshness surges from hell
Sympathy and generosity a mere fantasy
A fresh calf, hounded by ruthless tigers
Oh how I long for the past
For it was all I lived for
The third day, relief had appeared from the heavens
But indeed it proved false
Caresses of rain, dried in the unrelenting desert
The facade quickly broke, taunting me
That nothing here would remedy my hopelessness
The fourth day, I’m beginning to numb and forget
The sweet kisses of yesterday
Forgetting the feeling of love and affection
Falling to insanity
Without your sweet touch
The fifth day, sobbing and desperate for you
Praying for your gentle hands
Reaching out I pray
Yet the call goes unanswered
I wish to see the bubbly sunsets
I long for the ventures in the evergreens
I beg for just one more laugh
One more smile
When can I seek forgiveness?
When can I see the light?
When can I vanquish my regret?
When can I learn to love?
When can I see you again?
