i don't want us to be lonely


i don't want us to be lonely.

but — it's when we get a taste of happiness that the trap of sadness comes in. it reminds us of what we are robbed as time inevitably passes — people going, moments ending, relationships deteriorating.

the passage of time. the sound of silence.

no laughter to fill an empty room. no light to shine on the dark corners of this hell that's called my mind. i ask for a little warmth, from the sunlight that shines through my window pane but my eyes burn as I sink deep into the fact that it all ends, it all dies, we all die.

and maybe that is why we look for a hand to hold, if only just for a while. you and i, me and you. i don't want us to be lonely.
