Loneliness is letting the fire die,
Forever knowing, forever weeping,
Forever do I turn away my head
Forever to walk in the shadows of a closed mind.
For we do not stop to question fear -
I shall not let you falter.
Just as I am lost upon the isle of loneliness,
The door beyond my broken shoulder...
Many dreams I lost come back to me:
I shall not let you falter.
Do not let the fire die -
Do not let your feet stand idle.
The hammer stands before you:
Your world is a ring of nails.
Will you let defeat hammer you down?
I will not stand to weep at a pool of tears -
When the world is my anvil.
Mop up your tears, and reveal your bloody feet:
My world shall not wait for your rusted nails...
And only you can grasp the hammer.
I’m not normally someone to make an emo blog like this, but I’ve bottled up the aforementioned emotions for the better part of three years and at some point you just have to rant. The process of writing it and making up my mind to post it has made me feel a little better. This is something I would have posted on facebook but I realized I actually feel more comfortable posting it here, I think people here will relate to it more than my IRL friends.
Stay well as always TL, you guys are awesome.
