THE WANDERER

I wandered million miles,

In search for an abode.

A place to catch my breath,

A place to rest my soul.

I wandered the grounds aplenty,

I chanced upon a grave.

I set my foot into the pit,

I rested, yet no peace I gained.

I parked  my bags next to the trees,

I lay my weight on the cold, damp ground.

I thought I could sleep with such pleasant breeze,

Yet again, I know not why, restless I remained.

I pleaded the Gods to lend me sleep,

Sedate my mind with thy mercy.

The God rebuked my plea and left my side,

A shuddering silence was all I could find.

A heavy heart seldom rests,

A burdened mind seldom sleeps.

I plucked my heart out this time,

Painful as it may seem.

Yet once and for all my mind was quiet,

For now my heart hath ceased to bleed.
