Sluggishly, I drag my feet,
The yellow haze is above my head.
It's cascading down like lovely silk,
How can I say what's never been said?
I'm blinded by the horrid light,
It's engulfing me in its heat.
I've been kept in darkness, sealed in night,
Can truth and lies possibly meet?
The bridge has kept me prisoner,
Ever since that unspeakable day.
Insecurities are like the way one loves,
Easier to feel than to simply say.
My bodies tears are dripping from me,
The heat cannot be overcome.
But I'm so close, the bridge is near,
My head was pounding, a native drum.
To sprint across that ghostly bridge
Would fill me up with passion and flames.
But the water underneath, it's slowly rising,
My fear cannot be tamed.
I gaze across at the other side,
It looks so peaceful over there.
It's like I'd be drained of all the neglect,
And filled up with compassion and care.
If only I could take it back,
But the past is only what it can be.
There's no way anything can be undone,
I'm still blind, why can't I
