NaPoWriMo 2016 - 19th Day

How to Love

Look all around you, and see these colors.
Vivid and bright are they to naked eye.
But deep within the soul, there's this force ...
It's making your appreciation fly.
Like a glass that stands before your warm gaze,
Blocking the universe within a maze.
 
Listen to music on the radio.
Do you hear every key of the piano?
The dark force seems to control the cardio,
Blocking the sounds, and making you say "no,"
When you ordinarily say "yes,"
For the music is threatening to bless
 
Your senses with the hurt you keep inside,
Bringing back the beautiful and old days,
When there she was, always just by your side ...
She was beautiful and so full of grace.
And then, she just vanished like a nice dream.
Now, you know those things aren't what they seem.
 
You can go on and wish of bringing back
Things that aren't here, things that don't exist,
Only increasing the feeling of lack,
Like fairies in the forest of gray mist.
Chasing all the dreams that are way too far,
Living like an old, overspeeding car.
 
One day, all of these bright lights will pop out,
And the music will not play forever.
You remember what it was all about?
You won't be in this place again. Ever.
Do you remember how sweet the cake was?
Did you pause to admire all the stained glass?
 
There is always an end to everything.
Use your time on doing good while there's time,
Appreciate every joy that people bring.
Trust me, though life's filled with evil and crime,
If you look really hard, goodness you'll hear.
So feel every moment while they're still here.
