beauty girl cry
by Cleve Sylcox

Hearts are heavy,
Spirits gloom,
Devastated lose,
Feels like doom.

Blackness swirls,
In deep waves,
Blinding thoughts,
With darkened haze.

If there is,
A silver lining,
Someone show me,
Where it’s hiding.

Death it seems,
Is all around,
Mixed with life,
In shadows found.

For those who,
Passed that way,
We need to live,
Yet one more day.
