Silence is further from the truth,
but we think it’s the solution.
Its just genuine emptiness driving despair.
In velvet darkness under the surface, it is easier to see.
The image alone is all that matters.
We’re terrified without love,
yet we smile when alone.
A child heads knowing into bright purple fear.
Silver fluid skin cracks when we’re tired enough to run away.
Layers of alcohol and blood leave scars even eternity cannot tear away.
Red windows on the outside are black holes on the inside
pouring life from your heart.
Sanity half fills our needs and leaves us unsatisfied.
Someone forever prays for the end,
when love blisters everyone who asks.
Reach out because you lived.
Pray enough to be given the universe.
Life at least saves those who want.
