Up
As if nothing else were right
Away from here
Leaving you
Gone
Up
A place to travel
A sanctuary in the distance
A better place?
An unfathomabe wish
Untouchable
Up
Not what was or will be anymore
But is
But lives
But kills
Up
No longer a dream
No more a wish
No longer untouchable
But a life
Like the lonely shadow through the looming fog
Creeping slowly
Waiting
Scared
Up
A dreary escape
Now the empty prison
Why did this have to happen
What did you do
Why
No longer yourself
Changed forever
Aproaching the end
Slide by the truth
Slip away once again
Up
A place not named for it's looks
Not seen by it's inhabitants
Not heard from below
But done for it's space
Leave
Only room for the lost
High
