I dream of perfect days but love imperfect ways. I cry in the dark and laugh in the light. My voice is calm, but my thoughts scream out. My smile hides the pain inside. Peace never rests in a mind like mine, and love never stops by to stay. Kisses don’t rest on my lips, nor do hugs get in my way—no woman to call out my name at night and no buddy to saddle up to the bar. I live a life of solitude with dreams of a happier tomorrow.
