melancholy blues

I ache in the shadow of regret
I hurt for yesterdays of sorrow
neglected feelings pushed down
where tears can't alter and the sun doesn't touch

my pain festers

it bears demons of rage
they stir inside me
rising to the surface
burning my tongue until they spill out as hate
this venom is promised for the hurt I buried today

deep within the well of sadness
where I am a prisoner
melancholy blues are the colors I wear
I seek the light just to be cast down
into the depths of misery
where I am bound

shameful day will you look away?

as I indulge my sins
and lessen your grip on me
I can't bear the weight of it anymore

tears fall, smoke like prayers rise
and I am silent in the hurt
