it's in the title
Cicada Syndrome
Break the happy shell
and you will see I'm empty

it seems as though it has always been

I've shed my skin so often
it leaves me bare

nothing left to lose
because there was never anything there

Many years will pass
before I say your name
I must first learn my own

I hear a voice
is it yours, or is it my own?
sleep won't come

and I can't feel anyone here

I long to be held but
how can you hold something that isn't there?
do you see me, or only a person who cries?

these tears burn

I no longer feel their scalding pain
it twists within this shell
finds nowhere to land

I want you here with me
where am I?
can I get to you?

would you want me?

this person with no one inside
this one who cannot find their own heart anymore
I long to fill it with love for you.

break this unhappy shell

help me find my soul
there must be one somewhere

There never was one here before
but I see it now
please don't let me believe

that emptiness is all I have
