Things Never Meant To Be Like That

First was confusion…

Sinking through the depth of one’s life
Thinking alone among the crowded hive
Of a truth that seemed reality, yet was illusion
Thinking about the cruel collusion
Done by a human to me… done by a …

Existing somewhere felt unreal
Somewhere in what seems so surreal
A cold breath was to environ
Imprisoning me in the oblivion

Is this real… is this where I reside?
A human that suddenly stepped aside
Look… look eternally in the death’s face
Look carefully… such shame and disgrace

Everyone seems to live in realty, running after a dream
Yet I live in a dream, running after realty, after the gleam
A day of an utter silence, of what seemed so sincere
Was ignoring each other that simple and clear…?
Eternal…?
What a loss, but is it internal…?
A way to the shelter seemed so blight…
Was I sad, or was I so delight…?

Second was friendship…

Did I lose a friend…?
A feeling overwhelming me, a feeling of hollowness
A dream haunted me, a dream of unreal sadness…
Isolated, I think alone… think about an eternal darkness
Darkness, such a sweet home… setting me free
Feeling myself, am I yet fading? Is it just me…?

Laws…
Ordeal…
Vapid…
Empty…

Laying on the bed of an awful sin
On a bed of an everlasting din
Lost inside the darkness of me, inside…
Seeing nothing… Looking for the outside…
Such feeling never haunted before
Such sweetness never felt sore…
Bitterness seemed far, seemed so…
Detaching myself from yesterdays…
Detaching myself from…
Third were words…

Agonized by an eternal quest…
Agonized by an eternal detest…
It is me, accept me as I am
Accept me as I scram…

Remembering the world of two sides
Gliding through the rain as I hide…
A friend betrayed me, is it usual…?
A friend dying on spikes of coral
Detaching myself from agonies…

Words ran away from my mouth
Words that once seemed so couth…

Heaven…
Agonized…
Tangled…
Eternally…

I can see you there, holding onto your scarf
Flying through the windows, as you laugh…
Crying… are these tears, why are they red…?
Mirror reflecting emptiness inside my head…
Detaching me from rejoices…
