To Be, To want to Be

I'm still looking for them
Searching for those sunshine rays
Waiting for them to gently paint my day

Colors that foretell euphoria
Shades that will appear on my face
Because to feel the sun was the goal of yesterday

And today and everyday I wait
To feel everything, to feel like I'm up
I try to feel, to be the sun, then my mind goes but..

Remember all the pain
Embrace the deepest shade of black
It tells me, to find melancholy, and fall back

Fall back into the well
Let the bleak water fill up in your eyes
Find a place to let your hope hide

Be the dark and not the light
Collide with a star
And all the damage done will be only a scar

Sometimes I write how only I feel, or how other people may feel. Maybe even a combination of the two, I write to say the words my voice can't say out loud.
