So much noise in the back of my mind

Looking for the peace I never could find

I sit and stare across this empty space

Wishing I could fill it with a familiar face.

Lost inside these endless dreams

Relief is never as close as it seems

And with your breath upon my back

I run, full speed, into the black.

You shout my name, I turn around

But you are nowhere to be found

Fist full of hair I stumble down

Unto my knees as screams surround.

My voice is strangled, not my own

Beneath each fallen tear has grown

A tree with branches reaching high

Through these dreams into the sky.

But when I try to climb the limbs

An ominous, crippling storm begins

And from the trees I plummet down

And find myself upon the ground.

Heartbeat slows, fades in and out

Whisper fades, ghost of a shout…

And in my final breaths I see

Your smiling face looking down at me.
