A circle in the dark

closed to the hope of eyes that see beyond the pain of now and understand the truth of why and live in the light, 

untainted by fear of the quest

deluded by happiness

But little faith in the light 

Illuminated my dark circle of life

And obscurity prevailed

Consumed by confusion and despair

And the inconstancy of life and love, 

I grew in a way understood only by me

What innocence

What hope

What great loss
