Void Meanings

Poetry By: MiyaviManson

Originally titled "Void Meaning" but title was already taken. I hate having to change the titles of my works!

This is a very sensitive topic to me so this one has a lot of meaning.

Words that traveled for miles reached me a little late
The message, never-changing, is always the same
"Won't you sit and wait for my return?"

I've seen a thousand faces in this parade
Instigating all that I repress
Yes, I've seen a thousand faces come and go

When the light dims and it's hard to see
When the air is thick and it's hard to breathe
I reach out for the echo of your alluring vows
and hold onto any fragment of them that I can catch

I locked the gates to the outside
I have buried love out in the yard
Because so I've promised the invisible voice

The years that passed, I underestimated
And it's been hiding in the ground for so long
Seems I've forgotten exactly where

When diligence crumbles and I can't stand still
When the loss of meaning translates to disbelief
I question myself, your words, and our intentions
and wonder, why am I still holding on?
