The mind is such an empty place Where ten thousand people roam They sing softly in one voice chanting in the only voice we own
Silently we stare with our eyes closed whispering into the blackest night forgetting we were almost there telling ourselves it’s gonna be alright
Did we never care for ourselves? When did we stop trying to cry? While we sit in absolute silence our soul escapes from our eyes.
The path we took held our redemption Yet we trampled it beneath our pretension We pretended it was an easy road We followed where others showed It was okay to walk, if you didn’t talk If you only whispered with your mouth closed Don’t see, don’t hear, don’t ******* blink and no one will ever know
How hard it is to breathe underwater How hard it is to stay afloat How difficult it is to hold your head up high While every bone in your body is broke.
When we look into another night with blind eyes and kaleidoscope sight We see visions of no one there Where everyone gasps, but no one cares and we lay our head upon a pillow of glass and ask ourself if anyone lasts?
The cuts, they bleed, mixed with the icy river of tears They wend their way through grooves of time Carved by age and the incandescence of all our fears But where they rest, on the face of a mirror I can only claim them as mine
If only I had known, how the thorns would of grown. How did they wind around my heart to pierce my eyes? How did they survive? Without sunlight, to make me blind? How did the cancer grow? I guess I’ll never know.
All I wanted to do was post a poem, it took forever on my phone... Unfuck your **** HP!!!
