Letting Go of Nothing

Desire is a flame turning hearts to glass.

I let my desire shatter me in my dreams

I let it take control of my life, drowning me in weakness.

How can you love someone who never existed?


My waking dream is taking over,

Drowning me in desperation

Needing a reality that matches its wonder;

Needing my love to materialize and become real

To lose myself in the sound of imaginary violins.


I am the composer of my own madness.

My fatal desire for my illusions to become consciousness

Threatens to destroy me if I don't let go,

But my insanity is the only thing keeping me sane.


How can Fantasy feel so real?

Why can't my delusions become tangible?

Heartbreak can destroy even the strongest of people

And letting go is like letting go part of myself

But I must let the emptiness consume me and move on with my life.


Blue eyes fade into the nothingness from which they were born

As the real world beckons me with loneliness.
