I’ve lost equilibrium
I’m gradually disintegrating
Descending from this fragile crust
I’ve crash landed on the concrete floor
My words are bleeding
My hands are numb
I’m burning the midnight candle
Just to survive through this day
Hallucination or reality
I see the dark clouds dissipate
Bluebird, are you heading this way?
Can you see?
I’m stretching my arms for you
If you could listen carefully
My words will syncopate to the rhythm of your heart beat
And bring you close to me
I’m perpetually yearning for the dawn
When this blazing light shall overcome this vandalism
By law of pure potentiality,
My faith echoes for your homecoming
Where are you my bluebird?
It’s been another day,
My mind is locked in existential ennui
Behind high ramparts
That I’m unable to break
I’m starving for a slight glimpse of your shadow again
Will you head this way?
Or depart from my mind towards an unknown direction,
Leaving me hopelessly in pain
Will you take me home?
To your world,
Where the storms are gone and skies are blue
My tears shall rinse all my scars away
When you’ll find me
And I’ll find you
