In the Darkness

There is nothing in the darkness
No desire for chasing light
And in the moment you cannot define it
This lacking of a passion lasting past one tiny spark
You’re only aware of your insignificance placed against the sky
And how your searching heart would hope until hoping dies
Such an unworthy pain
Though strong enough to keep you sane
A coat of dreams to wear against lacklustre days
So you don’t realize the wish you made
Remains part of a story on a missing page
And you could stay this way and life and love never change
Why do memories remain and stain long past the end?
I find and lose myself far too often
And I don’t know when I’m pretending
Or when my heart is speaking

There is nothing in the darkness
No desire for chasing light
