Memories And Cloudless Days
He can't remember a cloudless day
Surely, one, will come his way
He has seen the rain and heard the thunder
Watched lightning fill a child's eyes with wonder
He has fought in war and seen men cry
Fought in war and saw them die
He has heard that love can be trapped in the heart
Seen words used like actors, who didn't know their parts
He has seen silence used as a prison
Women cry for no apparent reason
But, he can't remember a cloudless day
Surley, one, perhaps today?

Quite good Martin. As you continue to put pen to paper, can you feel the shadows lifting and the clouds departing?

The pen releases the weight and burden of confusion. I never know what I'll say, but when I see what the pen has to say, I always feel better. My pen does a pretty good job of saying what it means, wish my mouth could do the same.
Regards to you, Mark,

Love trapped within the heart is a cruel fate, and words used used like actors who don't know their parts are deceptive. Man is intended to communicate on a deep level, and the saddest thing is, he may never know what he has lost. He has been defeated by the fact that he never knew what he was missing.
