Disequilibrium

We are taught to tread cautious
Life can be ferocious
Strike in sudden ways
Hide under the covers
With adventurous lovers
And together
Wait for better days
You drag around your dead rose
Tears like rolling shadows
On your white face
You still wail in despair
Like there’s nobody there
With you 

When cold
Creeps into the air
I chase snowflakes
Out of your hair
I’m here

Why won’t you talk to me, I can’t stand to fight
The vengeful ghosts that are haunting your mind
Your secret army of unspeakable things
The words unspoken that are louder than screams

I lay awake and I listen
You’ve built yourself a prison
With walls so thick
Still I can hear how you’re always
Pacing in the hallways
Over and over
Counting every brick
Oh I could leave you all alone
I’m as good as dead and gone
To you anyway
When there’s no one left to face
You’ll still be hiding just in case
In that damn place
 
Cold
Creeps into the air
I chase snowflakes
Out of your hair
I’m here

Why won’t you talk to me, I can’t stand to fight
The vengeful ghosts that are haunting your mind
Your secret army of unspeakable things
The words unspoken that are louder than screams
