Laura Zucca-Scott Returns

Tomorrow’s Colors

Wrapped around in a blanket of sadness
Warm and comforting
So easy to fall asleep
If only I could

Indigo blue is the color of today
And tomorrow I cannot see
I hang on to the feelings
That prove I am alive
Because pain is better than nothing

But when I gingerly lift the blanket
I see a smile
I see kindness in a stranger
I know I need to go
And tomorrow’s colors will come

Until the Day

Your voice hurts my ears

I never wanted to hate
Maybe I don’t
But my ears
Unwanted reflex
Of my very being

I do not want to hate
I just want time
Time to heal
Time to laugh
And run on silky grass
And rough golden sand

For a brief moment of bliss
The quiet
Soothes my soul
Then you begin again
And music is my only salvation

Until that day
When I am running free
And the wind
Chases my hair

Tears Burn

Tears burn
They leave marks of unspoken truths
Forgotten promises
And great hopes

Tears adorn a child’s face
Like precious gems
They make an old person young
Speak of the world
Even when words cannot

Tears burn
Until they can dry
