#16) Separation Anxiety

Bland is the day, tastelessly cold

Filled with dark spaces, and bottomless holes

.

In your absence I wander, miserably through, each well placed hour

Lamenting and blue

.

My thoughts they circle, round about you

And my eyes they run, desperately through

.

The faceless crowds, all aimless and fake

Hiding their hearts, all waiting to break

.

Beside my own which screams for you, in a voice so mad, yet pure and true

.

It scorches the earth, and fills the air

With drifting smokes of my despair

.

Forsaking a slowly burning heart, which burns the more like loveless art

.

Lacking splendor in every part, it fades away while we’re apart

#9) Lost

I’ve been traveling this road many a long day’s night

Wandering further and further away from this life

.

I’ve been drifting slowly down a river of lies, searching for some shred of truth to heal my withering heart

.

If you care to know my destination, then simply follow after

For I know not where I’m going, only where I’ve been

.

Pushed off the edge, down into the bottom

Where I lie, bruised and broken for my sin

.

How long this vessel will hold, is a question without answer

.

For life at the bottom is nothing short of cancer

.

Slow to destroy, but quick to progress

.

In this endless cycle of pain, I wonder…

When shall I rest?
