A lot has happened since you've been gone

The seasons have passed and changed

And with each new spring, summer, and fall

I feel your memory like a stain

It spreads like a vine

Poisoned by my tear stained face

Flowing through my veins

And now it cannot be erased

The blackness shriveled up my soul

Left me there to die

It hurt less to see you go

Than to prosper and survive

It crippled me from the inside

Invisible to the world

Nobody knew how much I hurt

How much I'd live without

But as my soul stays in its shrouded darkness

Afraid to see the light

I'm afraid I must live on a little longer

Because it refuses to die
