I look away and cry
never thought you'd die
I wish my tears away
So hollow I feel
Liken to reeds in a storm
I shake and tremble
My lonely nights without you
a broken heart for the loss of you
wish I was with you
You were the purest thing I knew
now there is nothing left to do
so just like you I drift
By Christos Andreas Kourtis aka NeonSolaris
plug me into my visions
where I never feel the pain
of living, caring, losing,
and the colors never drain
plug me into a world
where I can forget this one exists
the killing, hating, betraying;
my friends waiting to whisk
I try to fall asleep
And dream my tears away.
I just can’t shake the feeling
That no one ever stays.
They see my pain;
The scars of yesterday,
So they just stay away,
No one to lean on;
No one to whom I can pray;
There is no God
In a world so astray.
Put on a fake smile;
Pretend you’re okay.
Just walk away.
The pain in my chest swells,
A reminder of the fateful day.
What made me deserve
Such a high price to pay?
If only someone could come by
And make me feel okay.
But for now, they stay away,
Where we are, where we are. Oh where I want to be.
So far away from home, and I’m happy.
Where I go, where I go. Oh where I should be.
So far away from home, and I smile
Who we are, who we are, oh who I ought to be
So far away from home, and I laugh
Who I am, Who I am, oh who I could be.
So far away from home, oh where I need to be.
the sands have run out
and you are
to walk away
who knows where
and to whom
i could count the steps
and listen for that
which one will fracture first
deaf, blind and numb
will be overwhelmed
by the gone.
I do not whisper in the shadows
Or look beyond the sunken sky
I only wonder what happened to you and I
When did my search be empty as can be?
Did someone forget about me?
I shall not forget the darkness for it always prevails
But I can only be what is true for me
Another woman who struggles everyday
To weep among the lonely
Fight with no gain
Celebrate on the outside as I slowly melt away
I dream of a place away from here
where we are both at peace.
Where spring days are filled with silence;
where wordless glances- tender touch-
are our only known languages .
I want to sense you, to know you beyond words;
I want to know the moment your pulse quickens
and your breath is stolen away;
the soft fanning of your eyelashes
just before you are overcome with sleep.
I want to count the dapples of sunlight
on your cheeks, cast through veils
of spring-green leaves.
I want to see you smile without worry,
