I kept this pain locked inside my heart, for a long period of time
​perhaps it was out of respect that I kept it hidden for as long as I did
nostalgia's the dress I wore as the night fell into the dawn it became

​and slowly, I found myself lost in this depth of mind for many years to come
​I don't know if it was the longing for your soul to entwine & find yourself to mine
​or perhaps it was my own personal longing for my old self to come back home

I tell myself repeatedly, as the nights are cold that the days will flicker by fast
​maybe it's for the best that I lock myself inside, before I think outside the box
