Mind exploded, heart broken,
Thinking of the things that could’ve been.
Words unspoken, melodies unsung,
And views left unseen.

A song paused just before the chorus,
A film that never reached its ******.
Our story’s like a traveler in a forest,
Who forever lost its tracks.

From hours on end I thought of you
What could be going on inside your mind?
I am here, in darkness, pondering
How I am scared to get left behind.

Should I tell you the truth?
Not sure if it’s a risk I wanna take.
To lose you or to be with you?
Now it’s a matter of make or break.

The cold 3 am breeze
Tickles my skin.
The sound of your favorite song
Puts my mind in a spin.

I am now in a cloud
Way, way up the sky.
Constantly wondering why
You never said goodbye.

There is nothing more stimulating
Than the thoughts I have at night.
Just when I try to fall asleep,
My mind puts up an exhausting fight.
I can’t sleep 🤯

Our story was short,
But it was filled with bliss.
I’m grateful to you for,
Giving me peace.

You held my hand,
I held yours too.
We were floating in air,
But we never flew.

As the last chapter ends,
As I put the pen down,
I thought of you —
In your laugh and smiles, I drown.

I want so badly to be devoured by myself
And to still feel at ease, at home
Despite all the voices inside telling me
"This is no place for you to roam"

I've nothing left to do
Nowhere left to go
But I continue running
And putting up a show
Ever felt like you are not comfortable with your own skin, with who you are? Or how you are not in a place where you belong but you have to still have your **** together because people are watching. ***** man

My heart is shattered
No one is to blame but me
Ashes are scattered
