Going Through the Motions

Folder: 
Crimson

Secrets bound to silence
Unforgotten screams
Subtle little reminders
Of the knowledge that you keep
Binding chains and blistering restraint
Melding into flesh, and splitting stitched up seams


When all you long for is to break away
But there never seems to be an escape
You hold onto how you wish things could be
Never knowing if the chance to live is ever within reach


Going through the motions
Living in monotony
Searching for emotions
To warm the frostbite burrowed deep
An icy touch of so much bitter memory


When all you long for is a chance to break away
But there never seems to be an escape
You hold onto what you wish the world could be
Never knowing if it's ever really worth it to believe


Standing in the shadows
Hiding in the smoke
Wading in the shallows
For fear of what the depths may show
Clinging to the safest port in the storm
Afraid of being lost and left unsure


When all you long for is a chance to break away
But there never seems to be an escape
You hold onto what you wish the world could be
Never knowing if it's ever really worth it to believe


When all you want in an escape
But there never comes a chance to break away
You keep going through the motions
Living in monotony

Meh, monotony sucks

We believe all could break free.

It's a mindset of doubt that wills to decieve.

If inside your heart you are painting the scene

A world of peace could be manifesting.

 

There I tried...

And succeeded

From what I can see. Short, sweet, and poignant.
How I've missed your poetical responses :)
