As the wailing heart walks alone,
Even a stranger would do,
Someone to distract,
someone to understand,
But no one knows and no one needs to,
The wailing heart not able to cry,
Was it he who changed or was it a lie that he heard,
Oh how he hoped that it would have been a joke,
Something that had never been questioned before,
His soul empty, lost for words,
Mind and body worlds apart,
Time had frozen,
Was this him?
Lost in a world, a world that crashed around him, a world that had lost his essence,
One thing that he was getting used you, one thing that made him feel what it was to be happy,
Not knowing what to do, he stepped off,
Into the abyss of his mind,
Nowhere seems familiar
The shadow that walks in front of him,
Who is he? What does he do?
Everything escapes him,
He knew he wasn't brilliant or intelligent,
He knew that his only strength was his character, and that too had been questioned,
Lost he is among the people,
His wailing heart, wails the to no end,
