Shadows

“You’ll never know / How I feel deep inside / You’ll never know the pain” – You’ll Never Know by Legacy Of Music

The world is too dark now. Too empty. Quiet.
It’s as if the moon drowned in a sorrow-rippling ocean. As if our dreams frayed and scattered across a universe of dust. As if we never met. As if the black holes of my dilated eyes have absorbed everything there was.
 
(My lungs ache – I can’t breathe, can’t breathe)
 
And I can’t pretty up this anymore.
I’ve cradled unfiltered silences and secret hopes for far too long.
& They say my eyes are still too young, yet I have seen so much. So much anger and pain and despair – and I’m so tired.
I have no more tears to shed for the moon.
I can’t fathom the emptiness, the sweltering darkness. Nothing should ever feel so painful. (And who will ever understand…)
I have been lying for so long (I’m fine, I’m fine). Now the stars are exiled from this sky; and yes, I have loved you, but we are not the same anymore. It’s time now to rip out these broken wings that will never reach the sun.
It’s time to let go.
