There’s no one around, no one to see
It seems the world decided to let me be.
I thought I’d feel free with no one around,
No one to make those annoying sounds.
Yet now I find this silence crushing,
I can hear my heart beating, my blood rushing.
It feels like this silence will tear me apart,
My thoughts, my mind, even my heart.
I must find a way out of this silent place,
I panic, I run, from the silence I race.
Yet as far as I run there’s no one to find.
No one to save me from this place in my mind.
Something on the older side, but I didn’t see it on the list of things I’ve posted here already.
I can see a flicker in the distance,
A faint light dancing in the gloom.
With each passing moment I worry that it’s going out,
I worry that the world will go dark again.
Even though I’ve never been close enough to feel its warmth,
I still cherish that distant dancing light.
I can only imagine how warm it must feel,
To know the touch of that little light in a world of dark.
As much as a yearn to feel it,
I dare not get any closer.
I dare not do anything to risk putting out that dancing light,
The only light I can see.
