"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Tonight

Tonight I keep my thoughts for myself
No more visceral dreams
There’s no place in your reality that I can call mine
I’ll empty my harp marked bottle of bitterness
And maybe I’ll find a taste of understanding
While I’ll look at the ceiling and feel
Every damn chord of my deserted soul
