she closets herself away from our sight yet her ball has the brightest of glimmer a shining created for sheer delight how dare she hide her radiant shimmer behind the obscure curtain of a shroud she's disposed to making us cheerless by not displaying outside the dull cloud why oh why does she behave so joyless her rays won't beam in an opulent glow there she chooses to remain concealed her petulant manner has gone on show we await the hour she'll be revealed look our sun has had a change of heart she exhibits her brilliant orb so smart
The familiar is all but lost Relegated to monochromatic melancholy This place holds no joy Once soothing, now both dull and lifeless This is not my happy place This is not my comfort zone This place holds no peace Backed into a box of light gray Shhh... Don't speak, lest you be heard Don't watch, lest you be seen Don't care, lest you be hurt This place holds no love A hint of freedom long gone An air of acceptance Lured by what once was This place holds remnants of a dream
I'm sure I heard it Did you ? The snap or was it a clap Can't tell it's been too distorted and echoed around my empty soul Or rather this husk of what I used to feel: the love the triumph the passion the validation .
Now I'm sure I heard it or was it you clicking and praising my words yeah maybe that's what I heard no I can feel the sinking this hole in my chest I can't listen to my heart it's voice has be laid to rest six feet is quiet a feat.
There it is again no that was just a ding for an idea or a notion pleading to me to take action but this is a fallacy, a distraction I'm ignoring the signs to busy thinking what is mine rather then keeping what was mine now I'm left with nothing
There it is, that distinctive ring
The timbre is right I can hear the angels sing. this cold unloving content or is it fury I can't know surely but this time, this time.. I heard the snap of my mind
