A wall of nothing
Stole my words
Broke me down
I couldn't see
I couldn't stand
I lost what I wanted to say

The muses simply fled into another direction

Yearning to remember
What it was like to inspire
What it was like to remember
The first time I learned how

The first time I learned how to survive
On my own without her hand to hold
The first time I learned about people
And their deceitful manipulations
And all those times that followed

I'm trying to get a handle on the words I need to say
I'm trying to get some inspiration to show this a different way
But there's no words for me to use

Against this wall of nothing
It's invisible but clearly there
With a blotted out phrase
That ruptures my heart
What did it say?
Who had written it?

It was something I needed to remember

But buried it with my past
He didn't want me to know
What was it?
What did show?

I've taken a step back
Maybe more than a few
But I'm going forward at the same time
Missing something that I left behind

I lost a piece myself somewhere along the way
And He won't let me remember

A wall of nothing
Stole my words
Broke me down
I couldn't see
I couldn't stand
I lost what I wanted to say
