Drifting

Why?


I looked down at noticed something wrong
You’re not holding my hand
Where are you, what have I ever done?
That made you let go?

Everywhere I turn
I don’t see you
This must be a dream

Oh God please send me a sign
Or wake me up from this sleep

Maybe your, somewhere I will never find
Maybe your somewhere near, inside my heart

Look above the skies are clear
And it’s easier for me to
Look for you, in this place
That’s just covered in darkness
From the distance I can see
You’re standing there, in the sun

Finally, I won’t cry anymore

Sitting here next to you lets me think
Of all the memories we’ve shared
I through them in and stuffed them all away
But the case didn’t lock

Deep beneath, my twisted thoughts
Within one of the doors
I had this insane compulsion
That I could not control

I finished it
This puzzle
Now why won’t this dream end?

Maybe it’s a nightmare
Waiting for this to end

I see now because I failed
The only crime was I gave up
The punishments were way too much
You were my only attachment

I thank all of you dear
So I’ll abandon all of my fears
I’ll let time spin
It’s just a
Kaleidoscope

When morning breaks
Can I smile?
Can I ever smile again?

Though I know I’ve lost you
Have I truly gained nothing?
All the endless lies I’ve told
I was secretly wishing for

A way out
Of this hell
Just please don’t go without me

A wonderful poem. I find that your username contradicts its nature, for it seems to be fairly complex. I loved reading the words, and found parts to be very philisophical. Well done with this piece.
