Poetry of the Soul

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. ~Thomas Gray

The clouds are crowding in again
Blocking out my life.
I can’t see the path anymore,
All I know is there’s no other door.
And love, sweet love, it’s running away
and life, sweet life, it’s the only way.

And I decided I don’t need me
No, I don’t need me,
No, I don’t need me to live my life.
