Why I Sing

by Lady Nik   Jun 1, 2009

Hollow emotions enter my twisted mind
I'm out of thoughts, left with wasted time.
People point and stare as they pass me by
I'm a lost soul, let me tell you why.

Numbness covers my bloodless veins
I'm so hurt that I feel no pain.
You can punch me with your piercing words
But taking me from your heart hurts worse.

Summer falls upon me once again
I'm breaking here without my dear friend.
She always knew what to say and I won't let that go
She will always be my beautiful wilted rose.

Back to spring with rain that never stops
So many internal twist and turns I got myself lost.
I fell for a guy, my husband to be
If your reading this, I love how you lie to me.

Lets walk back to winter with her frozen truths
Heated by fixation I miss being bruised
Beaten by thoughts and hate filled glances
I miss my Romeo, Juliet by herself sounds so tragic.

Fall rolls down softly like dying leaves
Air so thick with sorrow, I can barely breathe.
I needed someone so I tore open my heart
He was my star that burned out leaving things dark

My simple story ends here
But unlike it, I can not disappear.
Forever I'll remain stationary with my broken wings
I'm the caged bird, now you know why I sing.
