2. The cold air gently sweeps across your face, as you turn to look at me. I grab you by your hand and pull you close to me. As these tiny crystals of hope fall from the sky one lands on your cheek and runs down like a tear of joy, as you stand in anticipation...
4. As it draws toward its end, the question remained. Only you knew the answer. I knew though now was perfect, as the tiny crystals collected on the ground. It's the moment I had hoped for. Nothing could stop me on this winters night, as the moon crest the hill and its light hit your face. I knew I was ready.
4.1 I asked the question, not knowing what would happen. I thought I had prepared and thought I was ready. I stood waiting for your answer. No, is all you said. As I knelled there with my heart in your hands. Watching as the...
6.1The snow faded red, emptiness consumed my soul. I couldn't escape this feeling of betrayal, I stood frozen in time.
1.Watching the sands pass through my hands, I try to stop it. Yet its flow is unrelenting, and undeterred. My arms are getting heavy, my hands weak from the strain. I'm being buried under the pile. Yet time does not stop. My heart stats to race, what can I do. I start to question whether I have the strength to press on. I'm giving it my all. Can I out last this on slot?
6,2As you stood there, I tried to take it back. No, its to late it couldn't be changed.
3. I have lost control of it. Giving out under the pressure, I collapse under its weight. I couldn't stop it, I couldn't slow it. There is nothing I can do now but watch it come. This moment is where I wished to stay, but time refused to stop. I can only sit and watch as the end draws near.
6,3 As you let go, it fells to the ground sinking into the snow, its was cold, all life drained from it as I watch it stop beating.
5.My sight has all but gone now, surrounded in darkness. No light, and no hope left. I pray it ends soon, it has seemed like forever since I started this impossible task, that has buried me in self doubt, and lost time. The sands are starting to crush me and making it hard to breath.
6,4 You turned from me leaving an empty shell...
7.Gasping for air, I can't breath anymore. I can hear the faint sounds of the cracking glass under the pressure. Thinking its to late, to save me now I'm to far gone now. "Giving up' I think to myself. Why now after all this time. I hear it pop again as the sand keeps pouring in. I stare into my soul and see all that I left. I can't give up now, I refuse, I struggle to free myself. The sound of the breaking glass is muffled by the sand that buries me, and as I slide out across the floor I see them...
8.look around the sand slowing turning to snow. The prison in which I have trapped myself is shattered. I awake to see myself broken and beaten. I look to where you stood, my heart left laying there, behind you in your path of destruction. I look back at myself, no I can't give up here. Looking around I see them beside me and behind me. I wonder have they always been there? Was it you that broke it or was it the ones who stood beside me? Was it my friends that helped me escape my own personal torment or was it you. I'm free, freed from my mind. I can see the damage I have done to myself. So now I must pick up my pieces and push forward. As I grab my hand, I cant help but think, I can move on.
As I pull myself together, I can feel the warmth all around me. As you walk away, the strain is lifted from body. I can move again. No longer weighted down from trying to fit into your life. I can breath, this feeling that overwhelms me is one of relief. My friends still standing there. I wonder how long had they stood by my side, how long did they watch me torture myself with you. It seems like ages since I've seen any of them. How long has it been since I let you take control over me. Everything is different now. How many times must I do this before I learn. My mind is at ease now.
