Strings flutter as
words fill my head.
I wish I can sleep,
but the lyrics make
me scream.

So I drive through
burning lights,
and you seem so far
away as I stare
in the mirror.

The lights escape
into the void of
my empty soul.
I blink and it
fades with a stranger's
passing grin.

I run up the
stairs and dash
through empty fields,
but wings flutter
and bat at my face.

All I can do is watch
the shadows try to keep up,
and the stranger stares
back at me.
