I hold my breath and look to the heavens
my heart pounding at the walls of my chest
shallow sleep has not once afforded me rest

in the darkness I make when I close my eyes
you smiled vacantly and vanished into thin air

as if being pursued by something,
bearing impatient fangs
raising a shattered fist,
all it grabbed hold of was loneliness

the husk that was just for show,
torn open and throw away
flew off sadly in the wind and vanished into thin air.

I'll try and walk further than I have before,
and leave the feelings I clung to here.
I'll try and walk on with nothing in tow
and seek out the feelings I couldn't see.

the husk that was just make believe,
I discarded when I could stand it no longer
flew off sadly in the wind and vanished into thin air.

I'll try and walk further than I have before,
and leave the feelings I'd kept safe here.
I'll try and walk on with nothing in tow
and seek out the feelings I once believed in.

upon awakening from a deep sleep, on that deserted hill...
