A word is remembered
A feeling is felt that lingers within the emptiness inside
Thoughts become visions that dance for your memory
They take a bow; then they step aside
Deep forest darkness where shadows are heavy
You wander, it's easy to get lost
Recklessly stepping without caution
You're learning confusion has its cost
Lost and abandoned alone in the darkness
Goodbye echoes in your head
Helplessly searching for answers to questions
And reasons for words never said
Pain is swelling from a place in the unknown
There's hurt there; there can be no doubt
Sleeplessly aching, you sit in the nothing
And wonder will you always live without
Peering through diamonds on frost-covered windows
You wish yourself on the other side
Trying to connect to that feeling once held
You take chase, hoping to collide
Only to fall at the sound of goodbye

I totally agree with Dawn. This has a fine flow and depth. Not to mention, magic lines like this amidst the sadness - "Peering through diamonds on frost covered windows." Thank you.

...this draws me in, and I am making up memories to play along in the dialogue because its just that good. At the end, the images make such defeated breaking. I love the idea of sound as the signal, the first piercing...as if stabbed not knowing. Before the phantom pain of eventual amputation. Metaphorically, of course.
