Weeping Angel Lost in The Darkness

~out The Fire~

~Out the Fire~
The face of the planet burrowed beneath
I’ve had enough
My thoughts will not keep
The walls around me close in
I cannot sleep
Or suffer from a strobe light dream
Of flashes of him
The pain in my chest as I see his smile
With aching eyes
The time grows weary
I’m just about to surrender myself
I want no more than a stealthy veil
When was my vision darkened so?
And I created all my pain
It has to give now
I struggle to sanity
Parading round my head
Picture shows
Too long a rest
Throw me back out into the cold
I need it somehow
Break me, make me stronger
I must push along
Not going forward
Somehow dazed and dizzy
Lost with no directions
Around is inside and a dying smile
Uncertain glimpse and nothing fits
Should be ashamed
Tarnished, maimed
I’ll do it alone
I shouldn’t be here
Shouldn’t stay home
Frozen fingers
Mistaken burning
Out the fire,
Out the mirage
Made it worse
Thought I’d help
Out the flame that wasn’t there
Extinguish instead the life inside
The frost stolen petal falls to my feet.
Look at what I’ve done
Everything behind me is all I can see
All for which I long
Long way home
Long way back
Out the flame
Out the living
