Portrait Of A Past Life

from The Last Vestige Of Hope by Dreaded Silence



I left everything the same
I no longer say your name
I've hung on for way too long
In fear of moving on

The clock stops ticking
The hands aren't moving
I am staring at a portrait of a past life

A divide is growing
My fear is building
I am hanging on the wall in a past life

No more ties to bind us
An agonizing distance apparent in your eyes

Nothing left of what we were
I am only dust on your memory

I left everything the same
And pretended it could not decay
From the day you were gone
I ignored the world in fear of moving on

I burn the portrait
Erase it forever

I end my past life
Doomed to relive it
