On my own again
hopes for the day run out from my clenched fist like blood
the essence of life
keeps my heart pumping and moving with less strife
struggles and torments
the invisible pain no one can see
that I have to accept as part of me
who is this girl I see?
i see eyes
eyes that can't decide if they should reflect their owners passion with vivid shades of green
or muddle into the shadows
an ugly shade of brown no one wishes they had seen
what are the things that I have seen?
i'm not quite sure because my mind is trapped in purgatory;
the line between reality and fantasy
what a lovely world it is to be!
i feel the sea of calmness on its shore washing over me
I am not alone here.
there's so much laughter creating a heavy dew in the air there's no need to breathe
make this moment last forever
as you look into my emerald eyes
pull the hair back from my face
and say we'll always be together
you're melting away
this whole world turns to gray
away from me
as i turn back to reality
it all seems so surreal to me
the buzzing of all the busy bees
can't escape the never ending line of conformity
break down the walls
keeping that world from my sliver in time away from me
or was that just another day dream?
I don't know.
i don't care
but this time when i cry
my face is not freed from the shadows of my hair
so this time as i stare into space
i think about how reality is such a waste
but then someone grabs my hand
or am i again whisked away to Neverland?
