Close Your Eyes

closet boxes 2002

When I let go to search for something

to find some meaning to this life

lost it all to find nothing

but this un-belated strife.

Gave up the things that meant the most

for a vision of better days

now I have nothing to lose

no matter what you say.

It's far too late

i'm too far gone

so close your eyes

it won't be long.

I never broke

a single heart

and it's too bad

I have to start.

This would sound wonderful as a song, especially that last stanza. It's really catchy for some reason.
