Eternal outlanders
Of our forsaken sphere
In search of kindred bodies
With whom to be cozily remote

I always thought understanding oneself
Would bring peace and desire for greater emotions
But the more I discover, the farther I get
Gently leaning towards isolation

Am I destined to eternal hollowness
or it is only me being utterly indrawn?
Sometimes I wish I pondered less
And lived a life more unlatched
But this bareness eats me up
A demon going wild on bliss
At times softer
At times sharp
Leaving me in a pond of distress

As years go by the magic tends to fade away
Together with the childlike hopes and wishes
The challenge relies within keeping some faith
Continuing to rear but eyes forever dreamers

My past had shaped me into a silly turtle
Hiding in the shell at every prosy lane
But thinking it over you come to realize
That the past is long gone and it’s time for a change
It’s time to smile more and make fun of yourself
Because life is too short to hide away in a shell

A glimpse of balmy light
Showing off its startling strength
After surmounting darkness
And all the dim phantoms within

I never thought I’d shelter in a place like this
Feeling safely encircled by its overawing beauty
Whilst trampling on its soothing perpetuity
For the first time I fear the upcoming epilogue
And the sense of bewilderment that will come along
Even though I’ve been well acquainted with it all

Cautious when it comes to matters of the heart
Anticipating pain to avoid dejection
Evaluating the risks of letting go of the grip
And downsizing it to highly rare exceptions
