DEAR LOST SOUL
I'm one to talk about forgetting it all
But I feel like I haven't moved at all
I put too much ice on my broken arm.
I'm now numb to my hollow core.
Dear lost soul, I'm here and still strong
Scarlet feathers and unfinished songs
I prayed that I'd reach you somehow.
A chasm still exists between us.
Quite some time still has to pass
Can you see and touch my fire?
I burn for things that will never be mine
Like the beauty I lost when you died
Or the darkness that once welcomed me
In its innocent warmth
What peculiar fate to carry the weight
Of a world that will never know love
My stories speak about how your teeth
Lures me in when you smile
I was aware of how I wanted to be
Who you'll chase and understand
