Only me - part 2

The coast is clear now,
The masks they had on,
is now left there on the ground where they took off,
I now look at their pictures hung on my wall,
And hear a little of them every now and then,
I sleep and awake on the sound of the hollowness of their words,
I'm breaking into a whole new space,
With no one there,
" It's just you" my shadow whispered,
Caught by the shiver of the loneliness,
I've been there,
I'm doing it all over again,
But this time,
I choose doing it,
I don't want to have you again,
I don't want to lose myself again in losing you,
I'm broken by the wrong choices I've made,
I'm damaged by the regrets I feel,
The weight of them is taking my strength away,
All what I've been doing,
is pushing myself to the edges,
To fall and feel a rush,
to set fire and feel burned,
Easy and hard to every interruption and distraction,
I wish one day,
All this would leave me behind,
Let me go,
Back to myself again.
