I ran through the endless nothing,
But saw through the surrounding smog,
I saw an outline of something,
It could have been you,
It looked like it could be you.
I ran faster,
Though deceit choked my lungs,
And deception tore at my clothes,
To show me, and everyone else of my true self.
I called out to you,
Though lies filled my mouth,
And time stole any sound away,
I called in vain how I needed you.
I sought out your silhouette,
Though delusions plagued my head
And tears blinded my eyes
So I could not see the path and I might stumble,
And soon I might be lost in this nothingness,
But still I ran on,
For I had nothing to lose,
I ran through the smog,
And found the silhouette,
But found nothing,
But a statue, hollow, lifeless.
I fell and cried,
For it was all futile
My last energy wasted,
And I had nothing left,
And the rain set in,
Dull and unending,
I was to die there,
But you came up to me silently,
And took hold of my hand.
You were not who I had been searching for,
You said no words of comfort,
But looked into my eyes and smiled.
And despite the tears still running down my face,
All I could do was smile blearily back.
