Past, faraway past lingering no more
The darkness of the world scares me.
There’s a shadow on my heart from you, for your
I don’t want to dwell in silence.
I don’t want to let the darkness in.
The light inside shines too bright to hold
this fear inside. I let you go to free myself
and dwell in smiles.
The memories ache and hardly seem to fade
but without you I’m better off. I’m free to be.
I wander seeking happiness, the lights to keep
away the dark. I don’t see you. I don’t need
you. I am wrapped in light with no room
for shadows on my heart.
