Closing Up

I used to think friends were the key to happiness
But that was sadly untrue
The only place where you will find any solace
Is somewhere inside of you
All the pain and all the suffering out there
Has to be let in
Leave the door to yourself securely locked
Stay safe within

And the Silence Speaks to Me

Trust lost
And not a word was said
Status quo
Gone in my heart
Changed in my head
Unspoken truce
Over a war never mentioned
With battles left unfought
Wasted time
All of it for naught

Chrysalis Dreaming

It's time to give up
I clearly have lost
I held on for this long
But what was the cost

I gave all that I was
Keeping nothing for me
For I had known
There was more I could be

But today I am the same
Tomorrow I will be too
Becoming something more
Never could have been true

Nearing an End

Spikes from the ground
Only a hundred feet down
I'm already falling
Escape seems hopeless
From a pain I can't guess
But I fell on my own

For that which will not come

For that which will not come
I am waiting
Nothing else really matters
I must wait
If it arrived and I was gone
I would regret
So here for now I must say
Not to regret
Alone in the cold and rain
Just to wait
For that which I will never have
I am waiting
