Who thought that emptiness took so much space?
The fire that once burnt blinding bright,
Now found a home in darkness’ face.
Look at those big, innocent eyes, looking at the world in awe;
Who thought that everything would turn out to be a disaster?
A heart, that tended all those dreams, all these years,
Now lied in the dust with all the aspirations, scattered.
Look at those shadows, laughing at these fostered ambitions;
Who thought that all those fantasies were just a hoax?
The sights of future that dwelt in the heart,
Now found a place in the house of jokes.
Look at these rotten scars, refusing to bleed;
Who knew, the falling of all the expectations, would feel so grey?
The visions that covered the mind like a mist,
Now turned into a gust and flew away.
Look at those shattered remains of a soul;
Who knows what can die any second?
The kind soul that, in this choking world, once stood out,
Now found a way to blend in.
Look at all those delusions, lingering on the mind;
Who knew that life didn’t play fair?
All the stargazes, ever aided,
Just turned out to be a big nightmare.
