“Leave the lights on when I go, so I can watch you down below”…

Gazing from upon high…
Suspended in mid-air…
Leaving far behind…
All the troubles, all the cares…

Floating through the clouds…
And high above the rain…
Looking down upon them…
The ones who caused such pain…

Finally tasting freedom…
From the chains that restrict…
Ensuring each and every day…
Became so easy to predict…

As life fell into a pattern…
Such a long, long time ago…
And ever since the incident…
It all felt so very hollow…

And became an empty shell…
Like a clock without any time…
A compass with no direction…
This was the result of their crime…

And left a broken, empty soul…
That was devoid of all positivity…
Sentenced to a mental prison…
Walking on hands and knees…

Never able to move forward…
Not knowing how to rebuild…
Locked such deep darkness…
It left life so unfulfilled…

With opportunities not taken…
And experiences missed…
Confidence was always low…
Like a virgin never kissed…

Now things are very different…
The weight has been removed…
There will be no more torment…
As there’s nothing left to prove…

Because looking down from high…
And suspended in mid-air…
They are all left far behind…
And this feeling can’t compare…
