something ending

to stumble and often fall,
as you make your way along an empty road
but despite the hopeless passion of your blank
& vacant world, you’ll keep going, won’t you?

have you often dreamt of running away?
alone & staring at the walls wondering what went wrong, you’re living a life that wasn’t enough,
now realizing how quickly you were forgotten.

you must be very brave, to keep going,
when you can’t even see a destination.
you must be very brave, to remember,
when everyone else, so easily, forgot.

sometimes, when the lights are dimmed
and you can only lie there trying to dream,
you hear a low cry of someone breaking,
the sound of something ending.

even the most beautiful things feel pain,
stained with hidden memories.
even the most innocent human beings are crushed,
by a world that no longer cares.

do you want me to come back for you?
if you’ve lost your way again in those shadows,
I will bring a light of a million stars of hope,
so we can find a destination at the end of pain.

do you want me to come back for you?
if you’ve been forgotten and left behind,
I will paint a portrait of your soul
so that you will never again be lost.

    This is so beautiful that I forgot to breathe when reading it. I can’t really pick my favourite part because I adore every single line so much :)

    "Do you want me to come back for you? if you’ve lost your way again in those shadows, I will bring a light of a million stars of hope, so we can find a destination at the end of pain." That's my favorite part! XD I love the sense of hope that is woven in those words!

    I love it SO MUCH! The last two lines are my favorite, they almost made me cry. My two favorite things are writing and painting, so you totally combined my two loves. :)
