Just let me breathe

Can't you just let me be?

I want to stay

Right here in my twisted reality

Why do you have to push me?

Can't I just gather my strength?

Don't make me step into the sunlight

I'm not ready to go outside

Please,

Please just let me breathe

Can't you leave me right here

In my pathetic reverie?

The sun is so bright

It's burning my eyes

Burning my skin

Why did I give in?

Your touch, it also burns my skin

I feel it melting away

My darkness being penetrated by the sun's bright gaze

Your bright gaze

I'm left with a new skin,

Pure

And bright

And clean

I'm ready to step into the sunlight

I want to hear the birds sing

I want to feel the sunlight

And dream

Of the day

That wedding bells ring.
