“Maybe I can’t see, maybe it’s just me”…

 

pain

This pain will one day pass and
your eyes will begin to see…

The world spinning around you is still,
full of wonder and fantasy…

The hurt that you are feeling,
will heal in the fullness of time…

Becoming your heart’s scar tissue and
a lump that will always remind…

Of the time when you flew high,
with wings amongst the birds…

Danced between thunder and lightning,
as electricity ignited your world…

Taking you to some places that,
you never thought you’d go…

Providing you with such experiences,
you never thought you’d know…

And emotions seldom felt before,
thanks to a version of yourself unseen…

Someone who sat deep within you,
but you never had the chance to be…

But now she walks alongside you and
the two of you have become one…

Now you face the challenge of,
keeping this version out of the sun…

Making sure she’s quietly hidden and
forcing her out of plain sight…

Because if reality ever sees her,
your mind will lose this fight…

And then life won’t be worth living,
because it will not be worth the cost…

As everything you know and love,
will be shattered and be lost…

So don’t let her colour your world and
prevent her from taking control…

Be strong and fucking fight her,
because the prize is your very soul…

As I promise this pain will pass and
your eyes will slowly begin to see…

That what was so very exciting,
was always just a vivid fantasy…
