When You’re Gone

Falling off the edge into the abyss
Nothing or no one to break your fall.
Hanging onto illusions
Hoping for revelation
Realizing that reality is cold and lonely.
Emptiness is a murderer
Torturing a slow death
Loneliness is suicide
Slowly bleeding the life from your veins
Depression is a poison
Contaminating everything you touch
Hope is an impossibility
Suffocating false expectations
Laughter to hide pain
Smiles to hide fears
Only God can help you
Where are you
Why can’t I feel you anymore?
Wake up inner child
Daddy’s not coming home
And if he did he would just choke you with his intoxicating venom
You can’t fix others
You can’t fix yourself
