A Dark Cloud Hovers

Sometimes an overwhelming sadness overtakes me
like a dark cloud hovering over my heart.


A shadow follows me throughout my mundane life,
the ghost of my past ever-presently lingering.


There is no peace within my pondering mind;
rest is a impossible feat I've never achieved.


When will I experience life as it should be?
Have I any hope of a happily ever after?
