I climbed alone without a soulsoundlessclouds and shadowsclinging above me.
Dawn pulls me out of isolation.
heart racesbreathing shallowsmind cries in panic
Every decision I'd made was wrong.
I am most alone then,with no onenot even the light.
I felt sick in ways that wereinvisible.I felt sick in ways thatno one wanted to see.
I needed youand you weren't there.Our relationship was severedand I didn't know why.
I start to feel OK,but at my coreI feel nothing.
I want to give youthe cure,yet here I stand,able to deliver the worst.
make it go awaymake these thoughts go away
the adventure seemed replacedby overwhelming emptiness
your body expresses what I cannot.your words say what I bury within me.I hear you and I lose all I am.
