Close Your Eyes

By: Jeremy J. Finch

Oh, look longingly at life once more.
Are there too many tears for you?
Ponder amidst the turmoil
which the world has subtly built around you!

Thin are the wires
that ruin and entangle your youth
in such utter yearning.

Thus I say to you, my dear friend:
The well-withering wall which is about you
Is nothing but a foolish facade...
Hiding the fineness of you, my faithful friend.

Tear down such masks, unfolded anger...
Firmly folding those eyelids gently,
And make much more than mourning
from loneliness too deep to fathom.

Find a beautiful tomorrow in yourself;
Your soft silence, your inner sweet soul.
