    Sad sad faces all around
    death, heartbreak, confused states of mind
    tears are falling like heavy rain
    fears building in the darkness
    no love for the sad
    times like these
    you wonder where the happy done gone to
    sad sad melancholy eyes
    all around
    downcast,averted to hide the pain
    yesterday I was full of sunshine and joy
    today I remember how the darkness feels
    maybe tommorrow I can exhale and blow all the grief away
    but for now I lay down
    and am craddled
    in my saddness
    a strange comfort I know
    but it keeps away the cold
    sad sad faces all around
    and as I raise my head and glance your way
    yours seem the saddest of all

    at first i wanted to tell you to get from around these people, they are killing your smile ... but then i read it again ... and realized that even i am, on occasion, one of them ... so i changed my mind and must simply say ...

    great peace

    Heavy, queen. This captures so many at many different times. I envisioned these faces, one that resembled mine at one time or another. Thank you for this. "10"

    one love,blak
