A summoning I’m trying to forget. There’s too much left between the ashes
Life lingers far except with me
My screams don’t seem to reach you
The warmth it surged right through my essence
Mine is not the same as yours
I want to feel me, can’t you see me?
It’s never like it was before.
Your voice echoes through me
As I go through life this way
I hope you’re not watching me
Fight this hopeless crusade.
Smoke is drifting It reminds me of the fog
Debris is lifting
It reminds me that you’re gone.
I remember the infirmary
Giving their apologies
I’m crying from the outside
I’m locked in from the inside
I can’t break free You’re not coming back to me
Your life is missing
And now I’m alone
My heart beats like a stone.
These clouds just never seem to part
There’s not enough time to shield my soul
It hurts just knowing your touch is gone
Why can’t it be just like before?
