Between the Tears

I felt your soul embracing mine

I hear your voice in my memories.

My soul aches for your presence.

I am a broken heart with a lot of stories,

A little bird that can’t even sing a sentence.


You are my past, my present, and my future.

I can almost see you behind my body in the mirror.

If I close my eyes, I want to feel your body…


I scream without a sound,

I cry without tears.

Why would I?

You’re not here with me anymore.


Step by step I go further

Into that abyss

Where you are with me no longer,

And my skin breaks free.

I am that lost boat between the storm.

I will become a boat that was afloat,

But that will never sail it through…


You can call my name any day,

I imagine your lips, your voice,

How much I loved the way you talked to me!


Today, the past is far away.

I am not myself today.


I could try and change myself,

Break free from those chains that I trapped myself.

Into the darkness, I feel a prisoner, a bird without feathers.


I sing the songs of angels,

Trying to call your name in silence.

Silent, I may prevail. Stay away.

We are the past that would never happen again.


I am a happy star, shining all night.

Without hope, dreams, or goals.

A paused game that will never play again right!


Over the sun, you can’t see me anymore…



Enjoy your path
