The cancer spreads inside me
As the cold winds thaw my heart.

I sit staring at the grey sky,
Wondering why it reflects my very being.
Is there a mirror above me that can reach into my soul,
Showing the emotions I try so hard to keep hidden?

A pallet of darkness
Stretching across
Sheltering me from the sun's
Harsh kiss.

Clouding the bright horizon
From my tender gaze.

Isolating me ffrom the world,
An island within a sea of people.


Lost until the end of eternity.

------- Author's Notes -------

Just reread it, and the first line doesn't mean I have cancer.. It's a metaphor..
