Gone, like a thief in the night. Missing, when I woke up in the light. Abandoned, I was left from your mistake. You give yourself a title, you’re completely fake. I count what you’ve caused, and didn’t hesitate to pause, Before seeing the otherworldly emptiness you’ve given me, Without...

I’ve waited for you in all this time. I’ve longed for you through season’s rhyme. Through the cloudy smoke you appear. The blackness of my soul has been cleared. You were once a myth to all around me. But now you are as true as the sky, stars, or sea. I’ve waited for you in all this time. I’ve...
