All your life you wait
In a serene, delusional state
For someone to come by and
Take your hand in their hands
The soft, surreal words,
Words only you can hear,
Words, which you have longed for
In the countless, indomitable years,
Then one day it appears.
The flame, for which you crave,
The infernal flame, which ignites
All your passion, and all your desires
And you drift in a dreamy state.
Your very own dreamland, full of hope
And full of colors, your heart leaps
Every time you feel the warmth,
But do not be deceived.
The rage creeps inside, the eternal thirst,
Feeding on your fears, sowing the rust,
As the faint gleam of hope fades
Through all the guilt, and all your sins,
A feast to feed the beast within.
Then let your heart stop pounding,
And let your mind take control.
Don’t think, don’t blink,
Don’t even weep no more.
For no matter how hard you try,
How grave you are, how hushed you cry,
No words, no prayers, no frail encore
Can heal the wounds of a withered soul.
