A short vacation from despair
when I gaze at your long brown hair
a short time from depression
when I look at your joyful expression

A spark of a feeling from the ashes of love
rekindled by eyes borrowed from a dove
a spirit reborn by a laugh resounding hope
a fleeting thought that perhaps I can cope

For a short while I pretend
that your soft touch can mend
a heart that has been broken like a toy
hidden in the darkened halls, devoid of joy

But life of course is cruel
and knows when to amuse a fool
by allowing a look at an artwork that's sold
to another whose heart is whole and less cold
