So softly I hear the music, whispering in my ear.

I cannot feel, but I know that the tears escape me slowly.

Like bullets throw the skull, the blasting puncture of each tear wounds dangerously.

Will I recover from this terror?

I close my eyes and lean back.

The music is softer, and its message is clear.

“Hold on, Hold on…”

I cannot hear it, I cannot hear it.

So softly it runs away from my thoughts, leaving me,

With this emptiness….

Author's Notes/Comments: 

how long can i hold on? how long can i wait? for something that feels like loneliness, for something that will never take?
