Under the dark void.
I wandered aimlessly,
Through the scar of pain.
The memory portrayed,
The silhouette on the lost way.
The hope was swallowed,
When I saw my face,
The contorted visage of misery.
You said that you could have stayed,
When you kissed me one last time at the doorway.
So why you ran away,
Leaving me there to stay.
Staying for the lost hope,
When there are nothing more for me to hold.
The landlady said that you didn't stay,
But I smelled the perfume that you had sprayed.
The vanilla of your favorite.
I cried in pain,
Wishing that you were there,
Smiling like everything was okay.
But I still cried in vain,
Cuz you were gone,
And there was nothing left to stay.
Nothing left to stay.
Please tell me that you did have stayed,
Cuz I was crying in pain,
And I didn't know that how could I take,
The sorrow within my vein.
