Mysteries

Mysteries to my mind -
Friendship and love and life.
Peace is an elusive pearl
When the ocean is in perennial strife.

Every clue complicates the case.
Every bridge leads to a new ravine.
Every relationship is a maze
With a secret I just can’t divine.

Each day is a rainbow of emotions.
Yellow, red, blue, even green.
Wisdom and enlightenment are
Lands this traveller has not yet seen.

The vine yearns in vain
For a sun that was always out of reach.
Every futile day spent in silent pain
Only furthers the breach.

I’m an actor without a mask.
I’m a painter who’s blind.
I’m far but near; near yet far
From solving
The mysteries in my mind.

Im the bored girl in the train
Im the hatred all in vain

Im the doper who knows no name
Im the dead man in the drain

(sing to the tune of "Gin Soaked Boy" by Divine Comedy)

Love this line,

"Every relationship is a maze"

And nice closing,

"I’m an actor without a mask.
I’m a painter who’s blind.
I’m far but near; near yet far
From solving
The mysteries in my mind."
