Sadness

 


 
 

 There’s a certain attraction
To sadness in us.
Sadness seems to be
The natural state of the soul,
The gravity of being,
And the necessary
Dive into deepest oceans.

There’s a certain beauty in sadness
And a certain truth in a tear.
There’s a peek of hope in sadness,
And real happiness can never come
But through the sapphire sadness of the soul.
The sad eyes looking to the endless desert today
Will one day mirror
A glance of paradise.
