The Cold Embrace

A frozen gaze upon my footprints, is this my path?

Have I really made these choices until now?
Is this the person I am today, so unfamiliar to me?

Where the numb presence
Shows how empty the world around
Has become from my actions
The reflection shows another face
For the man I am, the one I’d become
Is not someone I recognize

Don’t make it stare back, this stranger so vile
How did he became a part of my life, a promise so untrue
Where is the man I sought to be, one opinion so humble
Make the water stop falling, my vision so blurry

Another failed step, have I come to forget my dream?
Another leaf falls dead, why can’t I see it’s colours?

My withering future untold
For someone filled with hope
That never stood tall
Dreams reflected
In the wrong mirror
So it became another’s life

Where did the people go who told me they’d be there forever?
Are these empty spaces around him proof of his false existence?

Don’t make it stare back, a cold so black
How did he became a part of my life, this wind so severe
Where is the man I sought to be, my life so lost
Make the water stop falling, one chin so wet
I cannot even feel myself, the embrace so cold
As the seconds slows down, by choice so lone
