Abandoned Well.

I watch the tears fall,
Into a deep dark well.

It’s a sad sight alright,
When no one even knew they fell.

No bucket or crank can rescue,
The memories in the hole.

Can salvation ever appear?
When no one will console.

So let the tears keep falling,
For the well will never fill.

Let the despair grow deep,
As deep as an abandoned well.
