The true frigid numbness of tears, tears frozen and standing in wait.
A cloud will rain down emptiness, swallowing any pain.
I felt a frosty air swarm within me, swells inside to cover any thoughts of mourning.
I have no control of this tingling wall that is some times see through.
On the other side, I know there is free feeling grief that wages a war.
With the coldness holding back tears, raging over the healing, I fear for a day that the ice melts fast and drowns me.
Only doing what I need to do
Only wanting to get over this hump
I want to look amazing
I want to cry, fall into a hole
I want to be confident
I want to be healthy and uncontrollable
If good or bad, life spins us around. There is no winning Just being
|Only You Can|
Never easy, never a clear path to help make those choices that count the most.
Only you can deliver that to your world, to step from one place to another.
Be sure of those steps would be foolish, only you can be brave enough to go forward.
When the doors you open, trying to escape
Open to Darkness
Open to Emptiness
Open to Sadness
Open to a Storm
Open to Nothingness
Sometime the way out is not right in front of you.
