Lost souls

Scream if you must But know it is only the two of us in this emptiness And if my words lack trust Understand humanity is marked by ignorance. Am I beautiful? Do I seem like I deserve loneliness? Like depression would ever find comfort in such celestial beauty? Do you question my presence in this ugliness? For in your eyes I'm too beautiful Like a star for it only belongs in the constellations Along with a numerous number of other blue white painted stars Is it not so? And yet the same fate has befallen us. Darling I am but a facade For my Visage is as broken as the world For my soul is either black nor white And this heart has holes deeper than any abyss an empty soul can mend. You see I have walked where only beasts trod Where souls are damned and where gods fought And yet in the destruction of it all I still can't find myself A lost soul lost to eternity and paused time And so I found it beautiful and alluring to give in to the darkness right in front of me. But you're just like me The roots as well as the tree There's no earth willing Not a soul so forgiving And no God in this oblivion Yet we hope in astonishment for miracle healing... That our cuts and bruises would seize to exist And our desire for death would evaporate and seize to persist. But we found each other where souls meet It can only mean the despair Our desire to quell our thirst done its deed.
