Hardships of Time by Nomar Knight



Hardships of Time
By Nomar Knight


There's loneliness in the air
I can't see it
But it weighs heavy on my conscience
Perhaps love is an illusion
A trick of emotion

The desire to shed tears
Consumes me
But it goes against my conditioning
Mortal fools
Wreak emotional havoc
Stunting growth
Tears do cleanse the soul.

I pray ye won't reveal
My secret
Crystal drops fall
Sobs steal my breath
This aching heart
Consumed with one burden
Do you exist to love me?
I am one.

A lifeless wonder with a beating heart
Loneliness suffocates hope
My other half
Lost to me
By a quirk of fate
Oh how I hate thee
Time monger

As the night moves on
I grow crazy
Knowing that someone else
May be caressing your face
If I could only break
These chains of uncertainty

I would alas breathe in your scent
And gain strength
From your heavenly
Voice
Touch
Smile
Your mere presence
Would erase all hardships of time
