Pressed beneath a blinding sky
Fade against the unending, dreadful pale
Unchanging in ashes
A specter writhing in despair
The silhouette upon the backdrop
For a cold funeral

Lived every day like sand over skin
Recalling the vague touch of the sidewalks
Shadows from street lights
I'll never be there again

I woke up in green fields and smiled in the sun
I never knew I'd be leaving
I didn't mean to walk away
And there is no coming back
One step too many and now I'm gone

It's all a collection of moments
An arsenal of regrets
The realization leaves no smile
Cracks my skin and breaks my mind

I found a new grave in a cold tomb
Miserable sleep in every fatal dream
Unrest now in a cradle of regret
Hidden, wounded, the sun has died
Never breathing on what lies in the black
Stolen just beneath the signs of life
The wind tears me from myself, erasing me away
Slowly becoming invisible
Memories frozen painfully inside my head
Hardened, inaccessible
They hang suspended from my skull

Emptiness swells in the absence of a reflection

Blackness of death suppresses
Encircled by emptiness
Entranced in weakness
Where I am becoming
The end, undeniable
It has begun

In a place of forced solitude
Where I can never be free
Of the tempest through which I cannot see
Now I know, in this life
I will never see the ease that I must reach
And in the end
This snowfall will bury me
