Never Look For What’s No Longer There

Eyes drowning in emptiness. Heart sewn with misery. Body masked with a shell. Swing little girl, swing high into the night sky. You will meet someone there, someone to protect you. Let the stars lead you to where your heart may rest, and where your soul may sleep. A place you may weep, and a place you may keep. The sound of nothingness cradles you as you float into the ground. Never look for what’s no longer there, your heart will erode in the wretched mist of the past dear one. Listen closely for my lullaby, and I will hold you as you sleep. I will meet you in the end, we will always find a way to dream. As you float among your broken world, know that I will always be just a thought away.
