solace in solitude

I closed my eyes for peace of mind
but in my heart, still I find
fragments of your silhouette
begging me desperately, don’t you forget
how the adrenaline coursed through our veins
how symphonic our interchange between refrains
how our battles were conquered, one by one
divergent to convergent, infinity to none.

I take a deep breath and let this song fall out of tune
find myself some solace beneath the stars and the moon
it’s time I found some distance from these thoughts drenched in the essence of you
and learned to live for myself in spite of all that we’ve been through
I brace myself for the chilling numbness of another solitary night
but a surprisingly warmth overtakes me
and suddenly everything feels light,
there’s a life yet ahead of me
and it’s going to be alright.
