I'm desperately broken

Clinging on to what's left of emotion

It just won't go away

Still standing next to me like my shadow in the day

And cold like the bed I can't fill alone


Where is this going

Not found, and I can't keep going

Still my mind as the fears wash over me

Locked in to an empty room

Going insane in the flood of nothingness


Fear me, I am but empty words

Stuck in a world yelling out to be heard

Succumb to me world so I'm not alone

If only all was fine, in the comfort of my home


So let it all take me away

I miss that one sunny day

when we walked through the fields and lay in the sun.

I'm scared.

I'm scared I'll never feel that way again

When everything was perfect.

Do you even know how hard it is for me to see everyone else so happy

And knowing that I'm not

Nobody knows I'm not.


If I could find that again I'd never let it go

And I pray they'd know I'd never let them go

I want to be helpless in the tide of her eyes

Helplessly found by the way she makes me feel

This half of an existents isn't whole without her
