”At times when the heart is numb,
and feelings seemed to have left the soul,
when there is no such thing as emotional control,
It is in that moment when you might be most alive.

You have taken in a bit too much,
one more drop was too much to be handled,
your hair had gone too long without nourishment to be untangled,
See, you have felt too much to feel again.

Loneliness is taking over,
but being alone is all you want,
you seem to be on an endless haunt,
How? What it is that you seek, ceases to exist.

Happiness is only a moment,
it is there when you embrace it,
it leaves when you decide to erease it,
We are all longing for the one thing we cannot have.”
