The Crimson Sky


The crimson sky I saw that day, did I forget about it?
I made a promise, wrapped in the glimpse of excitement
...that me is no longer here

I hide behind my excessive smile
I choose to keep doing that imperceptible pretense
I keep waiting for the unpredictable thing to happen
But the empty night, the empty morning, keep coming

The crimson sky I saw that day, do I still remember it?
My own promise is broken, vanished into the air
I can't go back to the way I was
In this room where hope and warmth do not exist
Still broken, trembling, exhausted, I fall asleep

"Deceive others skillfully," said my inner self
These words are overwhelmingly painful
Saying that I will change someday,
The old me waved to me

It seems I won't see her anymore
My final lie was a kind one, "I'm okay"
The crimson sky that day, will I never remember it?
Embracing my promise that could not be fulfilled,
My life goes on
