Love seeketh not itself to please,
nor for itself hath any care,
but for another gives its ease,
and builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
~William Blake~

Giving Into The Gray

Overwhelmed with fear I whispered into the rain
Disarming defenses, Giving in to the gray
Tearing down all of my shelter within my hollowed decay
While this echoing silence gave every tear drop a name
They begin filling the voids with mundane hopes for a change
Heaven will save me from hell and blue skies will reign
Lazily lay in green grass watching clouds drift away
It's all but a deflated dream now that my colors have changed
My thoughts have become restless noise of uncertainties rearranged
Damning my emotions, lies decorated with grace
Now I stand with a hardened heart in the sobering autumn rain
I'm disarmed and defenseless,
... Giving in to the gray
