The alarm clock sounds the start to another day in my superficial life
Everday’s just another mark on the calendar
Another day of waking to bloodshot eyes and pointless lies
A day filled with empty conversations
A silent mouth, but a screaming mind
Questions rattle through my head,
Questions that will never meet an answer,
Feelings that will never surface,
Tears that will never kiss the light
Is my life significant?
Can my presence be the light that banishes the dark?
Am I someone’s favorite memory?
The reason a smile breaks through a stone face?
Was I someone’s hardest goodbye?
The reason for holding on?
Does my memory bring a tear to the eye, or a smile seen from the heavens?
I want to be remembered for how I loved with all my heart
How I always knew the right thing to say
That I didn’t hug too often,
But when I did, it was tight enough to feel years after
I don’t want to be remembered for my superficial life
The face-value relationships and all the things I left unsaid
As the detached person afraid to be attached
Thoughts caged,
Emotions staged
Will they ever be free?
I may never know,
But for now, I sit silent in a room full of chatter
As these thoughts scatter
