Letting go of who you Were

A silent tear
For all that was forgotten
It has come to sing a melody,
In the wake of our sadness.

I can't escape
As the walls of hope break down
The darkness envelops me
As i hold on to familiarity..
And sometimes I'll allow myself to dream.

Searching for happiness in a lost land
and i thought the skies would never fail..
My emptiness as overwhelming as a blank sea
Don't look in the cracks, there is nothing in between now we fall

I collapse through the absence of all desired
Spinning, losing hold of all that I am.
And the spirits smile at me tonight
As i crawl away from the shattered glass;
Mirrors of the self i used to know.
close the light
And you can no longer see the distance in her eyes torn away we are
