A memory of a distant past,
a shell it left, with a smiling mask.
Long i tried to be warm again,
cold was eating me from within.
Alone I learnt long ago,
cruel the world you left me to.
Would take my time to rise again,
strong I wove my shell my chain.
Always a smile I carry forth,
to hide the tide of a deep shore.
Waiting for a ray of hope,
that someday I will find port.
An angel or the god of war,
with a touch, you gave a scar.
Tore a veil that covered my soul,
raw you left, to heal alone.
Long the heart has been all cold,
broken and beaten at every shore.
Rays of light though many had come,
wish you were the special one.
A guard so strong to protect from harm,
in your presence it melted fast.
Would I be hurt or be set free,
fate be told only by thee
a ray, a hope was in sight,
if only you were by my side.
A hope to meet you sometime soon,
Is what keeps the heart beating true.
Searching in your blue eyes,
an answer to my hearts cries.
There are times I think, if you are true,
Or just a figment of my brew.
