Raimy

Ellie Sheehan


Looking above
 
Searching for our dreams
 
Raimy Iíve lost you
 
You were the hope in me,
 
All thatís left is me,
 
An empty, hopeless body
 
The trust lies alone.

 

Raimy why didnít you believe in me?
 
What was so wrong?
 
Iím the one that didnít do any right...
 
Raimy why did you put an end to it?
 
I want to stop the pain
 
The grieving for you

 

Stop breathing.
 
To be black
 
Lifeless
 
Cast me out
 
Blind me
 
Cease the sound
 
Let me taste death between my tongue,
 
The lips that kissed you.

 

Pain runs out of me
 
Dipping toward a direction
 
Defacing another life
 
You held me here
 
The hands that touched me

 

I keep reaching towards you
 
Fruitless efforts to form together
 
Make it all worthwhile
 
Iím still pain stricken;
 
Iím dying here
 
In and out I breathe
 
Let me gasp for air
 
The air you graced

 

Show me the light
 
White clouds soaring
 
Enigma
 
No worries
 
No time
 
Life was non-existent
 
Freedom
 
Alone with you...

 

If I could throw my life away
 
I would see you again
 
Standing by the gate
 
Embracing you again
 
At least saying goodbye

 

We would run free
 
Naked in a pool of thoughts
 
Finally weíd be alone.
 
Constant sea of confidence
 
Drown us away in the distance
 
Raimy wash your scars into the sun set
 
The scars are reality.

 

Raimy you used a cover
 
Dry bitter sorrow
 
FaÁade of happiness
 
Wasnít transparent
 
Why didnít you let me see?
 
Now itís all too late

 

I wish I lived in a well
 
That sheds no light
 
Surrounding me with my life,
 
Reminding me
 
To build up and beyond,
 
My own life
 
This life without you

 

I inflict this pain
 
Deep down within the veins
 
Take it away
 
Stop the breathing
 
Stop the pain

 

Nothing can be healed
 
Nothing can be done
 
Nothing is revealed
 
Release me,
 
Raimy youíre gone.
 
Raimy.
