How does an ocean of love
And leave behind a desert?
Those precious nights, those pure moments
When two souls collided in love
A mesmerizing explosion, a supernova
How can they leave behind nothing but a vacuum,
A black hole in your chest?
How am I still alive
Without a heart?
How does the breaking of a dream hurt
Like your world, your child has died
And while walking away you still manage a smile?
How did I survive
Or did I die?
Am I a ghost now..
Pretending to be alive?
Or maybe death was never the end
Just a transition into a different world,
Maybe ghosts can have a happy life.
