When You Are Alone

Sometimes when you are alone
Sometimes when everything is dark
Sometimes when it's all empty And when you can't feel a thing
That's when you feel unloved, uncared and....
That's when you feel colourless
Like everything is drained out
And you have no emotions left in you
There is a silence then, a silence so deep That's yours and yours only
There is a lot of noise around and people are laughing and talking and cheerful
You can hear it all but feel none of it
There is a silence then, a silence so deep That's yours and yours only
In that silence, in that blankness, in that depth, you swim through your thoughts and you nd someone who is there waiting for you To heal you, to love you, to understand you. You may give him a name, a voice, a face, a story,
You may give him thoughts and feelings
Then reality strikes and there is a lot of noise around and people are laughing and talking and cheerful
You can hear it all but feel none of it
You dive again and again and someday maybe You ask him who he is really and where is he Because you can't see him when reality strikes
And all he does is smile and smile endlessly until he fades away
And you then see a mirror
So clear,
And you see that it was you all along
You say bye to him
With tears dripping down your cheeks
But in your silence you go looking for him always.
And he fades away always.
