Empty vessel in my skin
You close the door
And I am not here
There is no way out of this cage
Nothing left to chose
Yet everything left to lose
Call for my mind
But don’t hurt me again
I can’t bear the pain
Please, don’t leave me behind.
With you gone
I turn to the riverman
To give a helping hand
To take me away at dawn.
And the river understands the silent words
It remembers where you are
And that we will always remain close, never far
We became sherds.
Cut bleeding on this broken love
Our dreams became nightmares
Lovesongs pushed down the steepest stairs
Why couldn’t we rise above?
What happened to all those rhymes you whispered at night?
Your voice belongs to another one
Your light became another one’s sun
And I keep searching for you, far and wide.
Our year wasn’t wasted
But I can’t find the words to say
Your lips were the sweetest I have ever tasted.
I cower in the corner of my mind
Wishing myself into your arms
Where there is no one inflicting never healing harms
Please come back – I am there; easy to find.
